My story

[p]Thank you for joining our 26.20 Challenge! Please donate and tell us about your challenge in the donation message to inspire others, as we build momentum for our FEES Fund Marathon Runners.[/p][p][br][/p][p][u]Message from Ben and Saskia [/u][/p][p]So here we go again! The virus was never going to stop us achieving our ambition of running the Virgin London Marathon, we were delighted that our FEES Fund charity place could be rolled over to 2021 and we are more than ready to take up our personal challenge of 26.2 miles on Sunday the 3rd October 2021.[/p][p]We have loved supporting FEES Fund from day one, and now to have this opportunity to run as ambassadors, is truly a great honour and we are proud to wear the running vest.[/p][p]FEES Fund has been founded to support young people to follow their dreams; through perseverance and patience to reach new horizons, through the difficult periods in their life and regardless of their background. Running to us has been all of these things, mostly perseverance ...[/p][p]A huge thank you to those who have donated to FEES Fund so far. Please join us with your [url=https://www.feesfund.org/events]own personal challenge[/url] and donate to create opportunities for even more children and young people. [/p][p]Good luck from Ben and Saskia[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]What is FEES Fund and what are you raising money for?[/b][/p][p]FEES Fund is a registered charity that raises money to provide grants to children and young people, so they can take part in enrichment activities and experiences, to support their love of learning. [/p][p]The 26.20 Challenge is an opportunity to fundraise and support the FEES Fund charity place at the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 3rd October. Our runners, Ben and Saskia are taking on their own challenge of running 26.2 miles and have already raised over £4000 for FEES Fund and completed hundreds of hours of training. Inspired by this, we have launched the 26.20 challenge [/p][p][b]What does it involve?[/b][/p][p]For a donation to FEES Fund of £26.20 (or as much as you like to donate of course!), we are inviting you to take on your own personal challenge during September. This can be anything that you’ve always wanted to try, or to do more regularly – it can be 26.2 minutes of bouncing, skipping, drawing, sewing, reading, meditating or it can 26.2 miles or kilometres – you choose! [/p][p]You can do this as a daily challenge or broken into chunks over the course of the month or even shared between friends. The end of the challenge is the 3rd October – the day our runners take the start line. [/p][p][b]Who can take part?[/b] [/p][p]Anyone can join, please share what you are doing and inspire others to take on their own personal challenge, so we can raise more money for FEES fund and support even more young people to have lifechanging experiences.[/p][p]We have set up a FEES Fund London Marathon page where you can donate your £26.20 or ask others to sponsor you for that amount [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/BenandSaskiaRunforFEESFund]https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/BenandSaskiaRunforFEESFund[/url][/p][p][b]When can I start?[/b][/p][p]As soon as you like!
