We did it… we all ran the Swanbourne Endeavour. Happy to report that there were no serious injuries. The cuts and bruises are starting to disappear but we hope the cash and awareness we raised for the 5 charities lasts a lot longer.
We were 20 people of the 600 who took part. Shout out to star performers Ben who came in 3rd and Dave who was 14th with times of 1h 03mins and 1h 13mins respectively. Truly amazing how they managed to get around so quickly. Well done guys.
Special thanks go to Sam who organised the event and training. And Sheree who organised the fund raising last week. We exceeded our target of cash raised with £900 going to local charities and over a $1000 for Translators Without Borders.
Remember you can still donate up until the 31st of October, although we reached our goal, help us to smash it! As Translators without Borders are based in the USA, we are using Razoo to collect donations in US dollars. Click the big razoo button and pledge cash in aid of a great cause >>>
I’ve put some choice photos below. I hope you get a sense of how difficult the ‘run’ is and how much fun we had (click on an image to open the lightbox).
Will start training again for next year soon
Thank you everyone who sponsored us. I know all the charities personally and know that the ££/$$ will go a long way and provide help to people who need it.
A national charity helping and supporting those who currently serve in the British Armed Forces, those who used to serve, and the families of both. The donation went to the Aylesbury Vale North arm of the charity.
They provided welfare to the Armed Services, including ex-Servicemen and women, those currently serving, and their dependents. The donation went to the local Winslow branch.
