Dental professor Damien Walmsley is getting his running shoes on to go that extra mile for charity.
Damien, scientific officer for the BDA and dentistry professor at the University of Birmingham, has been in training for the Bupa Great Birmingham Run – a half marathon – on 23 October for some weekes now.
He plans to raise much-needed cash for his local hospice in Birmingham – St Mary’s of which he is a trustee and has been sharing his days pounding the roads in an online blog – http://running4stmaryshospice.blogspot.com/#!/.
Since starting his training, he has had to travel a fair bit for work and the blog captures him running in Seoul and Turkey as well as local parks near his home in Knowle.
Anyone wishing to sponsor Damien, can do so at www.justgiving.com/DamienWalmsley.
