Team story

[p]Hello and welcome to 100 pink fairies and thank you for taking the time to have a look at our pages.[/p][p] [/p][p]Now you may be wondering why 100 pink fairies, well to be honest we knew that in order to raise significant sums of money we needed to capture the nation’s imagination.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]So we wanted to raise £10,000 for The Teenage Cancer Trust as we felt this was an amount that would make a significant difference, but to raise that all by ourselves seemed an awesome task.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]So, we thought we would harness the power of the people, get everyone involved and have some fun at the same time. What will be a fantastic way to make a difference to our world.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]We NEED 100 people who are willing to run, skip jog or even walk 10k (that’s just 6.25 miles for you oldies) and it would be fabulous if you could come dressed as a pink fairy.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]We will all be entering the Royal Berkshire 10k on May 20th 2018 (it would seem fitting to enter a royal race in our fair county and gives you plenty of time to train.) You will need to follow the link on the links page and pay for your own entry and of course purchase your own fairy outfit.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]One hundred pink fairies will be a great spectacle and will help raise the profile of The Teenage Cancer Trust.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]Each fairy will need to raise at least £100 so that we can meet our target of £10,000[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]It makes sense 100 pink fairies running 10k in order to raise 10k and make a difference. We can see the newspaper headlines already![/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]To be a fairy you can be any age between 15 and 100 and of any running ability at all as it’s the taking part and raising money that counts.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]We have included a training plan if you want to be a “proper runner” but equally if you want to walk round with no training at all then that’s just fine.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]Finally there is no upper limit on fundraising the more you raise the more research the charity can undertake so please raise lots![/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]So let’s recap You need to:[/p][p] [/p][p]1. Enter the Royal Berkshire 10k on May 20th 2018 and pay for your entry[/p][p] [/p][p]2. Buy a fairy outfit[/p][p] [/p][p]3. Train to run a 10k or walk if you want to.[/p][p] [/p][p]4. Raise £100 and do your bit.[/p][p] [/p][p][br][/p][p] [/p][p]Simples![/p][p] [/p][p]As part of the challenge Nick was kindly offered the chance of a Charity place by the Teenage Cancer Trust to run the London Marathon this will enable even more money to be raised on behalf of the charity. In order to honour this place the Teenage Cancer Trust need the fairies to raise 2k between them but we plan on raising much much more than this in fact at least 10k. Pink fairies are more than welcome to donate their sponsorship through the fairies page or set up their own Just Giving or Virgin money giving. All money raised however is donated will go to the Teenage Cancer trust. Nick also has his own London Marathon JustGiving Page where he aims to raise an additional £2000. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/nick2018[/p][p][br][/p]
