Celebrity Chef Tony Tobin appeals to London Marathon runners to join the NSPCC team

Celebrity Chef, Tony Tobin is urging runners who are signed up for the Virgin London Marathon 2010 to add extra meaning to their 26.2 miles by raising money for the NSPCCs Childs Voice Appeal.

Individuals who have been allocated a place in the main draw for the race have now been notified, and Tony Tobin, who will run the 2010 London Marathon for the NSPCC is appealing for those people to join the charitys team and fundraise for the NSPCC.

It is hoped that the event will raise near to 1m for the Childs Voice Appeal, which aims to raise 50 million to maintain and grow the NSPCCs helplines, text and online counselling services.

Celebrity Chef, Tony Tobin, said: I am delighted to be part of teamGO for 2010&8217s London Marathon and fully support the NSPCCs plans to extend both their vital ChildLine service and their Helpline for adults who are concerned about a child.

Deciding to set a personal challenge and fundraise is no easy task, however I believe that taking that step and knowing you are doing it to support others certainly drives you forward and makes you determined to achieve your goals. The incentive of being part of teamGO is knowing that the vital funds you raise will benefit vulnerable children and young people and I hope more people will join our team.

By raising money at this event you will be helping answer many more children&8217s cries for help so that no voice goes unheard.
