I will attempt to run (on a treadmill) 31 marathons, and then perform 31 stand-up shows, in 31 days, in 31 virtual cities from across Europe and around the world - to raise money to give to charities that Make Humanity Great.

Money raised will be allocated to charities making a real difference to disadvantaged and vulnerable people at this difficult time including some of those dealing with the wider effects of the Covid 19 pandemic. The first five to benefit are Fareshare, Walking With the Wounded, Care International, United to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases and Covenant House New York City. Depending on how much is donated other charities will also be selected after due process

A message from Eddie


There is too much talk of division in the world. Too much talk designed to pull us apart. 

In my life I try to look for the opposite - to look for what brings us together, which helps make us all stronger.

Working together feeds the spirit that can restore the greatness to humanity. 

‘Make Humanity Great Again’ stands for unity, the sharing of beliefs and the power of human beings uniting across the continents and around the world.

As a campaign it seeks to promote a fair chance in life for all, particularly those who experience disadvantage and discrimination. 

It speaks to people who believe there is more goodwill than ill-will in the world, who believe in the positive qualities of humanity and in the Golden Rule - to treat other people the way you would like to be treated yourself.

This is a time to look forward, to work together, to be tolerant and to live and let live. 

Which is why, when hope in the real world seems far away, that I begin this run in our locked-down world.

I will attempt to run (on a treadmill) 31 marathons, and then perform 31 stand-up shows, in 31 days, in 31 virtual cities from across Europe and around the world - to raise money to give to charities that Make Humanity Great.
