I have signed up for my first race of 2015 and am running the British Heart Foundation 10K in Regent’s Park on the 14th March.
As you will know I enjoy running and as well as recreational training, I also enter races to keep me motivated and sometimes to raise money for worthy causes.
I decided to take a year off from fundraising in 2014 as I raised a lot of money previously and everyone was very generous so I thought it best not to keep asking or (in some cases to get race places), begging for money!
I will choose my fundraising selectively this year and will see how much I can raise and will be more than happy with whatever I can acquire – after all any amount raised is better than nothing.
There was an option to fund raise for the BHF during the race on the 14th March (I have already paid my entrance fee which goes to the charity), but as this is a charity and a cause close to my heart (no pun intended), I thought it worth setting up a fundraising page.
As you may know there is a history of heart disease in my family and my mum has received lots of helpful advice from the British Heart Foundation. Sadly my uncle passed away just before Christmas and one of his many illnesses was heart disease.
I’d like to raise funds to help @TheBHF find a cure to beat heart disease and to help support the many patients, carers and loved ones who have, are supporting or want to help those with Heart conditions.
It would be great if you could see your way to sponsor me for this run – I am not asking for much! Any amount helps.
Please either visit my Just Giving Page or Text KTBH72 to 70070 to sponsor me £10 (I am sure this text service is probably UK only).
