I have made a big decision and, thanks to talking to my blogsistah last night, I have worked out how to include all myblogbuddies.....
I have registered to do the Race For Life this year, although I admit it will probably be a Walk For Life given my physical condition!! So far, I am one of 324,189 entrants!
What is Race For Life?
Since it started in 1994, Race for Life has grown to become the UK’s biggest women-only fundraising event. All the money raised by our participants helps fund the crucial work of Cancer Research UK – the world’s leading independent organisation dedicated to cancer research.
So far, over two million women of all ages have run, walked or jogged to raise over £140 million in sponsorship for the charity. This year we hope to raise £60 million for our life-saving work by bringing an amazing 800,000 women together to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
My inspiration to do this event is Minerva over at Womanly Parts. Her brave battle with cancer has encouraged me to do my little bit to help out.
I will be walking the race on the 16th June at Lydiard Park, Swindon. Or I might be gently jogging by then :-)
Thanks to the wonders of modern technology you can sponsor me online (if you wish). Click here if you want to help out. I have been modest in my forecast of sponsorship - I would love to exceed it!
Update: as the sponsorship has started to roll in from generous bloggers, I have increased my target!
I have a little bit of a persuader -
the blogger who sponsors the most money will have their blog URL emblazoned across the chest of my t'shirt on the big day. All the other bloggers who donate will also have their blognames written on my t'shirt - but smaller :-)
Friends who donate will also get a mention somewhere on my clothing.....
