You'd better have a good pitch...
I'm running the Great Eastern Half Marathon in Peterborough at the end of October for Crimestoppers. They are the only charity dedicated to stopping crime. People can ring in anonymously and even get a reward if someone gets convicted on the information that is given. If you want to find out more about crimestoppers go to www.crimestoppers-uk.org I have only got a few sponsors so far and would like to raise £300. This is my first ever half marathon and the training is going ok at the moment. If you would like to sponsor me you can go to www.justgiving.com/zoeappleyard. Many thanks for taking the time to read this and good luck to everyone in the Great Eastern Run this year.
3 Days, 3 Races, over 42 miles!
In January 2008 me and my husband are going to Walt Disney World Florida to take part in 3 races on 3 consecutive days:
- 5K Fun Run, Donald Duck Half Marathon and Mickey Mouse Marathon
We're raising money for charities which you can help to choose, and we hope you will sponsor us and become "virtual supporters" to cheer us on! Find out more and sponsor us on line at...
...and all because I wanted to complete my first ever marathon before I reached 40!
I'm running for Macmillan, I've lost both my dad and my nan to cancer and Macmillan were superb, especially for my nan who battled but sadly lost her fight last year. I've always wanted to give something back and now this gives me my chance.
