Competitor Stories – Lee & Alie


A regular look at some of the inspirational stories from some of our amazing DB Maxers……

This week it’s Lee & Alie who took part in the Chilly 10k with us.

They are raising money for Action Medical Research Children’s Charity and these are the reasons why:

‘Sadly back in December 2005, me and my ex wife lost a little girl who was born too early and asleep. I decided I wanted to try and help others not have to go through our experience so decided I wanted to run The London Marathon so I looked into charities and came across AMR.’

‘I lost a little boy in July 1997 who had a rare genetic condition and sadly was born asleep. My youngest child is Autistic with severe learning difficulties, severely delayed development and other ongoing issues. Autism is also an area that AMR do research into.’

They are running many events this year trying to raise as much as they can for this amazing charity. Lee will be attempting to break the world record as Paddington at Bath Half Marathon and they are both running the London Marathon in aid of the charity. Lee will once again be running as Paddington trying to break the world record and they also have 12 other Marathons already booked.

‘Me and Alie do lots of races (last year was 38) and I can honestly say that the Chilly 10k is up there with the best, so we will definitely be back.’

We look forward to seeing Paddington and Alie at another of our events and we will come prepared this time with a marmalade sandwich at the finish line!
