What do you do for your birthdays? Do you go all out or use it as an excuse to do something different?
When Sarah and Nicky turned 50 they decided to come up with some fantastic fundraising ideas. Joined by Rachel they decided that they are going to do something different every month for the year.
For their May challenge, they decided to run 1km every hour, for 24 hours straight. Starting from 30th April at 8 pm to 1st May at 7 pm. All to help The Wisdom Hospice.
Even though they have been running for almost 4 years. Running with no sleep and very little rest in between their kilometres was mentally and physically challenging. They were cheered on, with friends and family at all hours, some even running along with them. Helping to keep their spirits up and their feet moving.
They had a great finishing reception as they completed their 24th km in the 24th hour. To make it all worth it, their efforts raised a fab £1,100.00!
This 24-hour challenge is an amazing example of finding your own way to fundraise for us. A simple idea or challenge combined with a JustGiving page can make a massive impact and generate some amazing sponsorship. Thank you, ladies, for not only using your birthdays to help support The Wisdom Hospice. But for the extra kilometre you have gone, to help raise money to support those patients & families living with a terminal illness who need our help the most.
