Damian B Big event is coming up on Saturday. The grandly titled "World Corporate Games" where I'll be running 5km followed by a one mile relay. Money is being raised by the 200+ strong team we are entering.
Everyone wants to do something good for someone else and it's an added bonus if you do it through a sport you enjoy. I have posted a similar challenge but this one is more achieveable. The challenge is to raise some money, any amount, through any sporting event, for any charity in 2012.
Raise money for charity through sport. Challenge rules
- Use your passion for sport and give something back.
- Any amount, any sport, any charity.
- Have fun whilst doing it
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“It seems I quit this Challenge in Sept '13 instead of completing. I raised £280 for Help For Heroes by running the Perkins Great Eastern Run Half Marathon”
