My story

[p][b]12 Challenges, 12 Months, 5 Charities [/b][url=][/url][/p][p]DONATE FOR GARY, POLLY AND TRICIA [url=]HERE[/url][/p][p]New Years Resolutions - I never keep them[/p][p]In fact I've stopped making them[/p][p]I keep meaning to do something for charity and never quite get round to it.[/p][p]If 2020 (and Now 2021) has taught me anything, its taught me that you don't know what's round the corner so if you are going to do something then do it![/p][p]So in 2021 I'm playing catch up:- I'm trying to get fit, lose weight, and do something for charity and #GiveBack[/p][p]Not just something but 12 things, and I've given myself 12 months to complete. Not just 1 charity either, I've chosen 5 charities that mean something to me. #12in12for5[/p][p][url=]Twins Trust[/url] - We have 5 year old twin girls and the support and knowledge of the Twins Trust has been invaluable[/p][p][url=]Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity[/url] - I lost my brother when he was 14 and he spent a lot of time in the "Sick Kids" and having 3 kids of my own at one point it felt like a second home. The support and care you receive there is second to none.[/p][p][url=]Simpsons Special Care Babies[/url] - The care in the Simpsons Baby unit is excellent and out Twins were born there at 33 weeks and spent time in the special care unit and were looked after amazingly.[/p][p][url=]Scottish Autism[/url] - Our Twins are going through testing just now for ASD and this has been a good resource so far.[/p][p][url=]shout 85258[/url] - Our Mental health is so important and we look after it so badly. this free text service will chat to you when you need it and don't judge. Its great for being able to reply at your own pace and not having to talk out loud.[/p][p]So what I am I going to do?[/p][p]This is the plan so far*[/p][p]So Challenge #1 is complete, Dry January complete by myself and My wife [b]Tricia. [/b]This was a lot harder than expected with the death of a close friend and the lockdown and dreaded home schooling [/p][p]Challenge #2 is [url=]COUCH TO 5K[/url] This has been on hold but has started again this week as I have a Knee injury. I am now taking it easy[/p][p]Challenge #3 Is the [url=]SUPERNOVA 5K[/url] at the Kelpies but this has been postponed due to Covid until November – Again [b]Polly [/b]is doing this one too[/p][p]Challenge #4 brings the [url=]VIRTUAL KILTWALK[/url] where my oldest Daughter [b]Polly (9) [/b]and I will walk from Ferrytoll in fife too Queensferry across the Forth Road Bridge this one is now complete[/p][p]Challenge #5 - the fun(and inflatable!) GUNG-HO 5k(NB – We think that this is not happening and are currently trying to decide on a New challenge to fit in this slot) [/p][p]Challenge #6 is a [url=]5K FOR AUTISM[/url] am going to run this as the finale of Couch to 5k Campaign as All organised events for Scottish Autism have been cancelled due to coronavirus for 2021. I Plan to run the path from Roslin to Danderhall[/p][p]July for Challenge #7 [b]Tricia, Polly[/b] and I will give up Meat for the whole month and August 7th is [url=]10K FOR TTTS[/url] (Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome) with the Twins Trust(Challenge #8) and September is 30 MILES in 30 DAYS (Challenge #9)[/p][p]October brings Chalenge #10 which is [url=]SAVE POINT [/url]for Edinburghs Childrens Hospital Charity which is a 24 hr gaming session for the whole [b]family [/b]Even the Twins [b]Scarlet and Amelia (5)[/b] will join in. November is MOVEMBER for Challenge #11 and the rescheduled Supernova.[/p][p]In December for the final task I am holding a Raffle – I Have been rounding up prizes and have donations from Next, IRN-BRU, Camera Obscura, Iceland and Julie Dawn Cole – The REAL Veruca Salt from the 1971 Movie, Hollywood Ginge and Dunelm Mill[/p][p]So there we are, New Years Resolutions, Charity Giving, Challenges and fun![/p][p]All I need now is for you to [url=]Donate[/url]. I don't want to do all this for nothing :) [url=][/url][/p][p]For more info and up to date Information please visit the blog [url=][/url][/p][p]Thank you[/p][p]*DISCLAIMER - some of the events may be cancelled or postponed - if this happens then I will attempt to find an alternative.[/p][p] [url=][/url][/p][p] [url=][/url][/p][p] [url=][/url][/p][p] [url=][/url][/p][p] [url=][/url][/p][p] #12in12for5[/p][p] #giveback[/p]
