Lets Support Iain

Dear All,

Please take the time to read the text below. Iain has taken a massive task on, one that I wouldn’t tackle. He is trying to raise money for ‘Children with Cancer’, I’m sure you will agree there is no cause more worthy than that..

If you can, please donate…any amount no matter how small, will make a difference.

I am sure Iain will complete the Marathon, he is taking the training very seriously. I would love for our members to get behind this fantastic cause…..





Fellow Karateka of the BKG. Some of you know me and some of you don’t but I am running the London Marathon to raise money for the Charity ‘Children With Cancer’.

I am appealing to your charitable nature to see if you can help me smash my target of £1500.00.

A couple of years ago I lost my interest in Karate but instead of doing another sporting activity I did nothing and became a bit of a lazy slob. Then one Friday last autumn when I should’ve been in the dojo I was watching a programme about an 11 year old boy suffering from cancer. He was the same age and had the same sporting aspirations as my own son. As you can image this really hit a nerve, so I decided that ‘Children with Cancer’ was a charity I wanted to do something for.
I contacted them and they offered me a place in the London Marathon. Ooops!

Physically this is a massive challenge for me, so to help me mentally and physically I returned to karate and immediately started feeling the benefit. It was also nice to spar with Sensei Ian which is also quite physical.
Anyway, if you can spare a donation. no matter how small. it would be very much appreciated. You can do this by either donating to my Just Giving page or passing your donation to Sensei Graeme who has a sponsorship form.


Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Train hard and stay focused.
Iain Murray.
