Just seen on the BBC news that Phil Packer has completed his London marathon today http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/8041374.stm
Phil has almost no mobility in his legs but managed to complete the course on crutches over the last 14 days. A massive physical and mental effort by Phil, who is trying top raise a million quid for the Help the Heroes challenge, he's now up to £725,000.
In just over 3 weeks I'll be part of a team assisting Phil with his next challenge, climbing El Capitan in Yosemite. He's obviously a really tough cooking and I'm really looking forward to spending some time on "the big stone" with him. You can read more about Phil's story and donate at http://www.philpacker.com/
