Cancer Research UKOne of the great things about blogs,  Twitter,  Facebook and other similar networks is if there is something your want to share with colleagues, friends and ‘followers’ then it only takes a few minutes.  This is ok if used appropriately,  I think this is one of those moments.

Once a year,  I break from the normal subject of Unified Communications and ask people for sponsorship.  A few years ago it was the British Heart Foundation as I was doing the London to Brighton bike ride but this year is Cancer Research UK and I am doing the Reading Half Marathon.

My request therefore,  is to consider donating tomorrows ‘lunch money’ (e.g. £5) and sponsor me for running in the Reading Half Marathon.

Oh …. and for every £ you donate,  Microsoft will match,  so you are helping spend their money also !
