Not content with 10 marathons, Andrew has decided to run The Great North Marathon dressed as a Tetris Block! He has also managed to rope Clark in on the act!

Pictured to the right, the boys along with two of Andrew’s friends will take to the streets of Newcastle on Sunday 18th September to complete the 13.1 Mile Half Marathon. It is hoped this will raise even more money for the worthwhile cause.

Andrew commented “I ensnared three hardy souls, including our own Clark Gunn, to join me in the Great North Run in fancy dress as 6 foot high Tetris blocks.  Each of the three new members have set up Just Giving pages so the sponsorship is coming in from all sides.  Clark is running for Coco so it is providing a nice split between the two charities which was as had hoped for in the beginning.  We will be running with cash buckets as well so the sight of four struggling Tetris blocks will spur people on to dig deep and donate on the way.”
