THE STORY:

Hi All to Family and Friends!

Most of you will already know the xciting news that I'm moving to New York in the middle of October. However, even more daunting and exciting is that on Sunday, November 3, I will also be running in my first ever marathon - The NYC Marathon.

As well as all the training I've ben trying to squeeze in before my move, I have decided to fundraise for the amazing charity WITNESS - an international nonprofit organisation who have been fighting against human rights abuse for over 20 years. You can find more information about the amazing work they do below or get in touch with me for information.

It would mean a great deal to WITNESS, and to me, if you would consider sponsoring me and contributing to the great work they do. As a nonprofit organistation, donations are a fundamental part of what allows them to carry out their day-to-day work. Lastly, if any extra incentive was needed, you can be safe in the knowledge that I will be reaping the benefits of the 'Stig Westwood' rushed marathon training program and going through some serious pain on November 3!

Join Team WITNESS on November 3, 2013 in its fourth year running the ING New York City Marathon. Each member of the team has a personal fundraising page on this site to raise money and awareness for WITNESS.

Every contribution matters – pledge your support for Team WITNESS today!

WITNESS has been using the power of video and storytelling for 20 years to open the eyes of the world to human rights abuses. It was co-founded in 1992 by musician and human rights advocate Peter Gabriel, Human Rights First and the Reebok Human Rights Foundation. WITNESS empowers human rights defenders to use video to fight injustice, and to transform personal stories of abuse into powerful tools that can pressure those in power or with power to act. By bringing often unseen images and seldom heard stories to the attention of key decision makers, the media, and the public, WITNESS catalyzes grassroots activism, political engagement, and lasting change.
