My name is Paul Preen and I am teaching at the British International School. I have competed in several triathlons and cycling races around the world raising money for many charities over the years. However, this year I plan to focus on running. I will be competing in three marathons in order to raise money for just one charity. My first marathon will be in Tokyo on 22 February, followed by Phuket and then Bangkok. All the money raised will go towards buying the sails and masts needed for the Schooner IXDOS to set sail from Phuket on a mission of hope. I am hoping that my efforts this year will get the ship finished so lives can be saved sooner than later.
