We're Sam and Michael and we've decided to combine our passions for physical challenges, helping others and filmmaking. As such, we're running from London to Brussels to raise money for charity and making a documentary while we're at it.

We'll be doing 8 marathons in 8 days in late August/early September, starting outside Queens Park Rangers Football Club's Loftus Road stadium and finishing at Brussels' famous Grand-Place.

We're raising money for two very worthy causes - QPR Tiger Cubs (Down's Syndrome Active sports project helping children with Down's syndrome) and Macmillan Cancer Support. Check out our blog for updates on fundraising activities. To contribute, please visit our Virgin Money Giving page. 

Michael, in collaboration with Go Forth Films, is making a documentary about the whole challenge. This will follow the vigorous preparation and the gruelling run itself, capturing all the highs and lows experienced along the way.

Finally, all that's left to say is thank you. Whether you've donated, spread the word or just wished us well, your support is greatly appreciated.

Sam and Michael
