Phil's Dirty Dozen - by Paul Kyson
We are running 12 half marathons through 2016, in memory of Phil Smith. He had worked for Threshold for over 20 years, and was a true champion for the under dog. He has helped change the lives of many people who have sought help from Threshold, Paul being among them.
He experienced first hand, the hardship of having to travel to Oxford for radiotherapy treatment, and prior to his passing, had been very passionate about the Brighter Futures campaign. He even attempted to raise money through a sponsored bike ride that unfortunately he could not complete due to ill health (his son-in-law took his place).
We’ve run Wokingham, Yeovil, and Bournemouth Bay half marathons so far, with Ridgeway Revenge coming up on the 18th June. Please donate now and help us make this a fitting tribute to an amazing man.
