Text TOFS18 £10 to 70070 to sponsor Tony now or visit Darron's MyDonate page   'I am Darron Strange, and I am delighted to be running the London Marathon for TOFS. My inspiration for my run is my son Jack, who was born unsuspectingly with TOF and OA on 17th July 2002.  Jack was diagnosed with his condition within 3 hours of birth, and we frantically looked up everything we could on his problem which was when we first came across the TOFS website and their support network.   Jack was operated on that evening and after 10 days we were finally allowed to take him home.  After many complications and trips to the hospital over the first years, Jack improved as he got older and other than the long scar under his arm where they operated and has grown with him, (plus the good old Tof cough!) you would not now know he had been through such a poorly childhood.   Jack will be 16 in 2018, and with the race being run on my 48th birthday, it seemed the ideal chance to raise awareness of this great charity and also some much needed funds.   I am proudly looking forward to running under the TOFS name, but not so much the training!  Thank you for your support.'
