Early adopters

Although Sick Kids Save Point officially gets underway this coming weekend, some people are forced to shift their marathon due to outside commitments.

Neil Gow undertook his marathon a week early, and played only children’s games.

“Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and support, it’s been a long couple of days but thoroughly worthwhile,” he said, after raising an incredible £554.30 for the Sick Kids Friends foundation.

Today our Welsh champion Matthew Maloney has kicked off his 36 hour test, which has already seen some Dying Light and Sleeping Dogs –  we hope he doesn’t sleep when the light really does die!
