In October I am planning to run my very first marathon! 😱 I’m not entirely certain what possessed me to sign up for a 26.2mile run but I did. So as I am going to run that far anyway, for fun (?), then I might as well try to raise some money for a worthy cause while I’m at it.
Popsy is a local charity that arranges outings and holidays for partially sighted and disabled children. They do have some amazing holidays but to accommodate all the different needs they hire a jumbulance .
It may not be cheap but it does allow children who are unable to access any other kind of public transport – buses, trains, planes – to experience a holiday. I’m hoping that by pushing myself out of my comfort zone for 26.2miles, I can raise some money to allow a child to go on holiday with Popsy to Disneyland.
To do this, I am hosting a virtual run. The cost of this run will be £10 and you will earn this medal…..
So how does the virtual run work?
- Sign up using the button below
- Complete 26minutes of activity any way you chose- walking, running, wheeling etc
- Send me proof – pictures of you doing the run, fitness watch read outs, Strava upload etc
- Wait for your medal to arrive in the post
It’s as easy as that!
If you are signing up for a child who may want to be presented with their medal at the completion of their run then please let me know and I will send the medal out before your run.
The medals will be sent out 2nd class to keep costs down as all the profits from this race will go to Popsy.
