Bailiwick Law Enforcement’s Quality Assurance & Improvements Officer, Barry Grief, is running the London Marathon to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and is asking for your support.
Mr Grief works within the Joint Emergency Services Control Centre (JESCC).
He decided to support BHF as his family has a history of heart problems. His mother died from heart failure, his mother-in-law suffers from cardiac problems, and he himself has atrial fibrillation.
Mr Grief is looking to raise £3,000 before the marathon which takes place on Sunday 23 April.
At the time of publication, he had raised nearly £800 with just over a month to go.
“BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK, but sadly everyday hundreds of people lose their lives,” he said.
“It's only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. I am currently pounding the streets and shores in Guernsey in training so I would be so grateful for every pound in support.
“It all helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target.”
