101 Things in 1001 Days #27

Fundraise for a Charity

 If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me sharing a JustGiving link every now & again, as I was Fundraising for Cancer Research UK. As I am sure many of you will agree, it is a very worthy cause that needs our support to help find a cure & put a stop to Cancer! But how was I Fundraising? By doing a 5k Pretty Muddy run! I absolutely love being able to raise funds & awareness for such a fantastic cause as well as the personal challenge of taking part in fundraising activities. It turned out to be a really hot morning in Bristol, which made it a little more difficult but also much more enjoyable when we reached a muddy obstacle as it cooled us down slighlty - now I understand why Pigs wallow in mud! 

Me in the middle!

I know this sounds a little silly, as it is called Pretty Muddy, but I didn't quite expect to get as muddy as I did. Being part of the Race for Life, I thought perhaps if would be quite tame, but when we reached the last few obstacles we really got caked in thick sludgy mud! It was heavy to run in & not particularly pleasent when it dried into my hair. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic morning & I really enjoyed taking part & after a long hot shower & 3 hair washes, I was squeeky clean again. Luckily, I have lots of lovely family & friends who very kindly & generously donated to my page, allowing me to reach my target - so thank you to all of the lovely people who donated. You're all amazing! Maybe next time, I'll do the Tough Mudder....

Have you done any fundraising for charity recently?
