Giving Back

Martin will be running the 2016 Calgary Marathon as his alter ego "Captain Clot-Buster". His aim is to raise $1,000 for Right To Play and give the gift of hope to 20 underprivileged children. In February 2015 Martin was diagnosed with a massive clot on the brain and was placed into an induced coma. Thanks to medical and family support plus good fitness Martin survived and is now ready to run his first marathon since the diagnoses. Please support him along his way and click here to Donate
