Very Off Topic! My 10k Sponsored Run

Postby Bruce_C » Mon Jun 06, 2016 3:24 am

I hope noone minds me posting this here

I'm a lapsed runner and I'm trying to get back into shape (other than round) so to motivate myself I've entered a local 10k race and I've decided to try and raise some money for the charity SpecialEffect

The charity uses technology to help young disabled people have access to computer games, something most of us take for granted. Take a look at the website to see some of the fantastic work they do.

My sponsorship page is https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/m0rt and I'd be grateful for any sponsorship. My goal is a hundred pounds per mile (10km = 6.2 miles = £620)

Cheers

Hey Bruce, is the pledge amount the total pledge or a pledge per distance?

It's the total amount for the distance Robert, hopefully nothing will stop me running the full 10km (6.2 miles) :D
