A few weeks back I told you how I was getting involved in a massive Land’s End to John O’Groats relay to raise money for Sport Relief. The relay is going to take around nine weeks and has already involved cycling, kids’ scooters and push-along cars and an awful lot of fancy dress! You can see the photos of the fun so far on the Team Honk website
The baton makes it to Gloucestershire on Wednesday 12th February, when Julie from Julie’s Notebook picks up the baton in the centre of Gloucester from Team Honk Bristol. She will then be walking her dog wearing not-so-understated Gloucester Rugby fan kit through Gloucestershire where she will meet yours truly.
I will be running 10 miles the next morning. No fancy dress, I’m afraid, I can’t run in fancy dress. But I’ll be donning my Sport Relief Tshirt and running from the outskirts of Gloucester, through Cheltenham and out the other side to a village where I will meet Joy from Pink Oddy.
Joy will be having some fun with the Beavers in the evening, before waddling off on a six mile walk to Tewkesbury, dressed as Mr Blobby. Fair play to her, that sounds very uncomfortable!
We’re a modest little team compared to some, but we’ve committed to raising £500 for Sport Relief. If you could spare us a quid or two, we would be most grateful. You can sponsor us on our fundraising page: http://my.sportrelief.com/sponsor/gloucestershireteamhonk
Or if you can’t be bothered with that, you can always just whip your phone out and text HONK to 70005 to donate £5. Either way, it’s all good.
Sport Relief raises money to transform the lives of some of the most disadvantaged people in the UK and abroad.
If you know my daughter personally you may choose instead to sponsor her (and her mummy!) to run three miles at one of the official Sport Relief Mile events. Three miles is a long way for a little girl who will just have turned 8! We’re going to run it together and I’m going to take it at her pace.
