I'm not really one for sports. Or charity. Or charity for sports for that matter, but this year has been a bit different to everything that has happened before. With my new found awareness of what it means to be a person of integrity and how that is the only true path to true self worth, I had to say yes. So this Thursday and Friday, I will be the holder of the baton! Yes the baton that has passed from blogger to blogger, through sweat and tears, from Landsend to John O 'Groats and goes by the name of Team Honk and is in aid of Sport Relief!G
"The first ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games take place from
Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March 2014. The public can join the fun and
games by running, swimming or cycling their way to raising cash at over a
thousand venues around the country, including the landmark events at
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
As one of the biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the
entire nation together to get active raise cash and change lives. The
money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help transform
the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people both at
home in the UK and across the world."
I don't do this sort of thing normally, so it would be lovely to be sponsored by, someone, if you can our page is here>> http://my.sportrelief.com/sponsor/bradfordteamhonk
and you can also text HONK to 70005 and donate £5 to Sport Relief .
Our aim is to raise £20,000 for Sport Relief and lots of people are doing tremendously creative things like Morris Dancing their way through their leg, hula hooping, rafting and the like. I will be running in usual running gear plus one toddler in a pushchair. There are over 200 bloggers involved, plus their (long suffering!) family and friends, and it promises to be a huge event. The route and masterplan is here and you can see exactly what is going on where and I'll be taking part in the Bradford leg.
When I've done my leg, I'll report back on what happened and how it went! WHOOP, go me!
