Hi, I am...
Competed in the Polaroid 10K Series, a series of four 10km races in and around Glasgow over a month, and then the Bournemouth Half Marathon.
I saw a piece on Children In Need. Seeing the families who had been dealt such a rough hand and how the Trust helped them regain their confidence brought me to tears. You could see exactly where the money was going. As an overweight middle-aged man, who couldn’t run for more than 30 seconds, I wanted another next challenge after completing the NHS’s ‘Couch to 5km’.
I found fundraising...
Exhausting, emotional and with huge sense of pride, achievement and relief.
Top fundraising tip
Widen your fundraising net by asking local businesses for things to raffle on Facebook. I had socks to ghost tours, murder mystery games even a fire-walk donated. It kept interest levels up.
