Weʼre raising £500 to help raise funds for Birstall Pre-School
- Birstall, Batley
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
After 2 successful years raising money for Breast and Children's cancer charities this year I have decided to raise money to say thank you to Birstall Pre-School in Birstall for the amazing work they have done and continue to do with Harry and all of the children under their care.
This year I will be running the Ali Brownlee Riverside 5K in Middlesbrough, Blackpool 7.5K Night Run, Dewsbury 10K, Leeds 10K, Burnley 10K, York 10K, Sheffield 10K, Yorkshire Coast Road Race 10K, Leeds Abbey Dash 10K and Doncaster 10K. I will also be running the Stroke Association 15K Resolution Run at Templenewsam in Leeds. I will also be stepping up the distance and be running the Sheffield, Leeds, Ilkley and Vale of York Half Marathon's and the Yorkshire Marathon. I will also be running the Great North Run again this year which is another Half Marathon. As well as these races I will also be attending various Parkrun's over the year which are all 5K in distance.
Harry will also be joining in with the running this year. After completing my York and Sheffield 10k's I will then be joining Harry in completing 2 Fun Runs, both a distance of 1.5km. He will also be doing the FunRunForJo 2.5K at Oakwell Hall in Birstall and the Ali Brownlee Riverside 2K Fun Run in Middlesbrough. I will also be accompanying Harry on these runs.
So this year it will not just be myself running for charity, Harry will also be joining in on the action. Roughly I will have run around 180 miles in the races over the year, not including the training miles I will have done by myself and with my amazing teammates at South Leeds Lakers Running Club. Harry will himself have run just over 4.5 miles in his races which for a 3, soon to be 4 year old, is an excellent effort.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story and thank you for any donations you kindly make.
