Edgar's 10 Challenges Fundraising Page

Sarah Jelly, Lydia Edkins

My page:

Lydia Edkins and Sarah Jelly are participating in 10 physically and mentally challenging events during 2014.

We began our events in April 2014 with the Superhero Fun Run in Leicester, we then took on The Wolf Run at Stanford Hall on 15th June, The Colour Run in Birmingham on 16th August, a 160ft Bungee Jump at Tamworth Water Ski centre on 24th August and Mudderella on 30th August. 

A huge 'thank you' to Vicky Swain and Vanessa Swain who accompanied us on The Twilight Run on 13th September. They were absolutely brilliant and have also decided to join us on some of the other remaining events! 

We also have the Equinox 10km at Belvoir Castle on 20th September, the Leicester Half Marathon on 26th October and we'll be finishing the year with the Lutterworth Santa Fun Run in December. 

We're waiting for confirmation on what our 9th event will be, we're hoping to do a sky dive and will keep everyone informed once it has been decided. 

Also we want to say a big thanks to The Bull's Head in Cosby which is hosting a pub quiz with all of the proceeds going to Edgar's Gift. We will be there showcasing our challenges and recruiting new sponsors!
