will be at least 1200 quid for CARE International and AMREF when I'm done

I need to raise £2000 for Tommys, the baby charity. I've got about £1200 so far - more worried about raising the cash than doing the training!

Need to raise £800 for MACS, have reached that, and hoping to get to £1000

Well I'm heading towards a whopping £4,000 at the moment for GOSH chilrens charity.

I've been truly lucky and very very supported with my sponsorship - so I'm pretty proud I must say.

Got to raise £2000 for Cancer Research UK. Up to £1750 so far, and know where a bit more is coming from. Should make it, I think. www.justgiving.com/neilsmarathon, if anyone is interested!

I'm on about £900 at the moment for Macmillan - I'm supposed to raise £1700 so I'm well short but I know I'll get at least another £200 more.

About £1300 for Sargents Cancer Care for Children I think.

Well done to you all.

I spoke with someone last night about this and we concluded that the charities should be grateful for every penny you raise, regardless of whether you manage their target or not. With four weeks to go concentrate on the race and enjoying the day. As the Penguin says the race is a thank you to you for all your hard work in raising money and putting in the training.

All being well I'll have raised £200 without even having to race! booo

Nearly £3000 so far - For the Blue Cross :-)

A "paltry" (compared to some of the numbers above!) £650 for a Local MS Charity.... That said, my employers have a charity matching scheme for the first £500 raised, so that puts me up to £1150!

Rocks, a £1,000 of mine came from employer 'matching' scheme.

NO amount raised is ever paltry - some people simply just get luckier than others with sponsorship. I'm sure your local MS charity think your fab!

Hi i have raised about £2000 so far for the British Heart Foundation.Good luck everyone.
19/03/2003 at 14:34
probably about £500 for PDSA.
19/03/2003 at 14:34
rocks, yeah well my 1200 quid is cos of matching! I've had over 600 pledged to me, so the company matching takes it to over 1200.

Ashely - yeah there was a big discussion on the forum somewhere about the amount that some people have to raise to get their places. I think the feeling was that people will always want/need to run the big races, so teh charities will push their targets as high as they can get away with. I feel lucky to have been able to get away with a tiny sum. All the extra effort that some people have put in, coffe mornings, raffles n stuff, on top of training must make it one hell of a job.

Good luck to all those still with targets to reach.

About £1,300 for Leukaemia Care.
19/03/2003 at 15:38
About £1200 for WPF Psychotherapy and Counselling. Well chuffed!

Around £1900 for the MS Society. May get a tad more but that's all my biggies in, thankfully.

I've got to raise £1500 for the National Asthma Campaign. So far I've got £1200 but my work also does the matching scheme up to the value of £1000, so I've got £2200.
