Running For Goldenhar 

Fantastic messages of support & donations as Kirsty & Pete get ready for the London Marathon
Kirsty Heber-Smith & Pete Dewhirst
With just over two weeks to go until the London Marathon, everything's on target for two Swindon runners taking part in aid of a very special cause.
That means near-distance training runs of 22 miles in and around Swindon and also racing towards raising a fantastic four-figure sum.
Kirsty Heber-Smith & Pete Dewhirst will be pounding the capital's streets on Sunday 13 April for Goldenhar UK, the charity well-known in Swindon through the tireless fundraising of Alan Holmes, whose grandson, Morgan, suffers from the rare Goldenhar Syndrome the charity helps to raise awareness of. 
And with just over 800 pledged so far on the pair's JustGiving page - plus dozens of messages of encouragement & support - it looks like all the training & committment Kirsty & Pete are putting in will mean Goldenhar eventually being more than a 1,000 better off.
"It's a fantastic effort from them both and I can't thank them enough for what they are doing," Alan said.
"Every penny really does make a difference."
