You might have heard that Mr Sharpe was running the London Marathon on the 13th of April 2014. Well, you will be pleased to hear that he finished with a time of 4:24:24. A number of stars took part this year including Mo Farah, Helen Skelton and Michael Owen but the main focus for Mr Sharpe was reaching the finish and raising money for WhizzKidz running at the steady pace of 6mph. He finished 17,604th out of approximately 36,000 which is a great achievement.
At the time of writing he has raised just under £2,000 but there is still time to make donations for WhizzKidz, a worthwhile charity who provide disabled children with mobility equipment and opportunities to have fun and play.
