Elmbridge 10K this weekend :)

My second 10K of 2012 is this weekend and once again I will be donning my Mr Men running vest in aid of Children with Cancer UK. To date I have raised £422 and I have at least another £20 pledged should I finish it in under one hour (the last time I did a 10K in under an hour was back in the late 90’s!). Any help you can give in plugging my fundraising page would be much appreciated:www.justgiving.com/stokie2012

Those kind folk at the charity also sent me a poncho in the post for race day although hopefully it will stay dry. It is a sizable field with 716 entrants and the course takes in the Thames as well the back of the local Tescos.

I am also continuing my auctions of signed items kindly donated by celebrities, comedians, sports people & musicians raising funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. To date I have raised £455 with recent signed items from John Bishop, Hawkwind and Ken Dodd. Any help on getting signed items much appreciated.

Fundraising update – Elmbridge 10K this month

The training continues for my 10K on the 22nd of this month, spurred on by my online trainer (who is now going to join me for an after work jog). The Elmbridge 10K now has over 470 entries and the route takes in part of the Thames towpath, along with the less glamorous back end of a Tesco’s Extra. My four year old son has been encouraging from the side-lines telling me to eat more pasta and potatoes!

Just over £410 has now been raised for Children with Cancer UK:

The Fifty Fifty fundraising of signed items kindly donated by celebrities/bands/sports people now stands at £418.58 raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. Rising blues rock guitarist Chantel McGregor kindly donated two more signed CD’s as she aims to raise £100 for my fundraising. A signed DVD from comedian John Bishop is currently at £5.50 :
