As September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, I have decided to enter a virtual race for the charity, Children with Cancer UK. The aim of this race is to run 25km through the month of September and raise £100 for charity – seems simple enough!
I don’t normally raise money for charity, I prefer make anonymous monthly donations. However, seeing as I am getting into this running malarkey, Facebook have cottoned onto this and this charity run popped up as a ‘suggested post’. Selective advertising eh? Needless to say, it worked and I clicked on the link.
There were three options available; Mr Bump’s 25km, Little Miss Sunshine’s 50km and Mr Strong’s 100km. Seeing as I wasn’t sure if I would have enough time in September to run 100km (or even 50km for that matter), I opted for Mr Bump’s 25km. Who knows, I might be able to run more but I find people tend to get a bit miffed if they sponsor someone who doesn’t complete the task set.
I already have 20% of my target of £100 which I am pleased with but I need to turn those ‘likes’ into pounds! I will have to badger my friends when I see them. I doubt I will be able to run 25km in one go, but I will aim to get it done in as few attempts as possible. Seeing as I have already raised 20% of my total I could run 20% of the distance tomorrow morning!
Anyway, if anyone reading this would like to sponsor me, you can do so by clicking here. This should send you to my Every Day Hero page.
Are you doing this virtual run in September? I would love to hear how you are getting on. If it’s something you think you would like to have a go at click here and visit the charity’s web page.
All the best, and I will keep you posted with my progress.
Thanks for jogging by!
