Pepper P Hello, everybody :). After ten days I am back :). But I wasn't resting ;), I was running for ten days all around Slovenia, where I come from, a ten-day ultramarathon that was also a charity run, collecting money for four families, and 674 kilometres done :).
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.
“I really enjoyed this, mainly because it is part of a bigger fund raising effort for a particular charity, but it was nice to be able to incorporate a TS challenge that I could complete, doubling my sense of achievement.”

In the meantime, have a look at my fund raising page which will stay live until October 1st :).
