Read about Matt's experience of running the Marathon for Alert:
"The marathon was a great experience and running for Alert gave me the motivation to get through all 26.2 miles. Conflicts around the world inflict appalling suffering on civilians and an organisation like Alert, which takes practical steps at all levels to build peace, are indispensable in remedying the deep harm caused by war. It's understandable that people look to problems at home first, but it's vital to recognise the extent of suffering elsewhere and the need for us all to help and not to stand by idly. Supporting International Alert was, for me, a way to support this point and, in a very small way, bring attention to it amongst my friends and family."
