Daniel Clark to run the London Marathon for Dogs For Good charity

A Banbury man is donning his running shoes in aid of a dogs charity based in the town.

Dan Clark, 22, is to tackle the Virgin London Marathon on April 24 for Dogs for Good, a life-transforming charity creating exceptional partnerships between people living with disability and specially trained assistance dogs.

Dan, who works as a web developer chose the charity as it is close to his heart. He said: “I am running for Dogs for Good as I have seen at first hand the good work they do for a variety of disabilities. I have been wanting to run the London Marathon for a number of years and being allowed to do so whilst running for a local charity is something I am really looking forward too.”

Stephanie Lawless, community fundraising manager for Dogs for Good, said: “This is an incredibly challenging race and we really do appreciate all the effort Dan is putting in to raise vital funds for Dogs for Good.”
