SIR - I am undertaking a challenging 10k run on July 12 to raise funds for Women's Aid, which does vital work with women and children escaping domestic violence.
Women's Aid suppports, on average, up to 250,000 women and children each year.
Over the last eight years, the British 10k London Run has provided an opportunity for tens of thousands of individuals from Great Britain and around the world to take part in the totally unique unrivalled experience of running the world's greatest race route through the heart of London, passing many of the world's most famous historic and iconic landmarks.
Domestic Violence is a serious problem, with one in four experiencing it during their lifetime. It is shocking that in today's society, two women are killed every week by a violent partner or ex-partner. I am running for Women's Aid to give abused women and children a voice and the chance for a better life.

I am confident I will complete the run and hope that local people will show their support by sponsoring me. I am hoping to raise more than �1,000 and would greatly appreciate any contributions.
