"Team Penguin" run for Cancer Research... please sponsor

Team Penguin

On the 19th September, "Team Penguin" will attempt the Great North Run 2010 to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research. The team is lead by Richard Logan who did the 2005 run in a penguin suit, inspired by Jack Dee's beer adverts for John Smith. This year, Richard will be joined by Laura Cawood, John Bretherick, Ben Brosnan, Oliver Anderson and Tom Haynes. All will squeeze into penguin suits and waddle their way through the run. "Team Penguin", as they are know, aim to raise £3000 for the charity, Yorkshire Cancer Research, and they need your support.

Please give generously.
Donating through Just Giving is simple, fast and totally secure. Thank you!
