Purbeck Marathon Gives To 'Help For Heroes'
12:04am 15th September 2013
Today's Purbeck marathon will now raise funds for Help For Heroes, as well as Swange area charities.
That's where organisers have decided to give extra funds from increased entrance fee numbers and streamlined running costs.
Help for Heroes is the chosen charity of Des Connor, who's chairman of the Purbeck Marathon.
He says he chose to help them as the race crosses military land and with service connections in the local area, including Bovington and Blandford.
