My story

[p]This year I am turning 50 in August. [/p][p]To mark the occasion I have set myself the challenge of running 2500 miles in 2019 and to raise money for two special charities along the way. As you will see my nominated charities are FUNDING NEURO and ST ANDREWS HOSPICE. [/p][p]To reach my target mileage and my fundraising target my challenge/plan is themed around turning 50.[/p][p]The CHALLENGE:[/p][p]RUN 50 miles per week for 50 weeks of 2019 - total 2500 miles.[/p][p]It was my intention to start the challenge in August 2018 and finish on my birthday in 2019, but nose surgery in September 2018 meant I could not exercise for 6 weeks - original plan scuppered! [/p][p]My challenge started on 1 January 2019 with a celebratory 10 mile run (HAPPY NEW YEAR!). [/p][p]FUNDRAISING:[/p][p]My fundraising target amounts to £1 per mile i.e. £2500; that's £1250 (+ gift aid) to each charity.[/p][p]Any donation small or large (50p, £1, £2.50, £5.00, £10.00, £25.00, £50 …) adds to the total raised and gets me closer to the target. As I mentioned in my recent live feed the duration of the challenge is the whole of 2019 and I'm covering a lot of miles! I'm not sure yet how many pairs of shoes I'll wear out :). [/p][p]Please support my challenge and my nominated charities by donating as much as you can. [/p][p]Your donations and/or supportive comments throughout my journey will be greatly appreciated. ANY encouragement along the way will be appreciated and will help keep me going to reach the target miles and fundraising target for these two fantastic charities. [/p][p]Thank you so much for your support and taking time to read my story.[/p][p]Best wishes [/p][p]Annette xxx [/p][p][br][/p]
