This is a challenge which I have set myself, the idea is very simple; to try to run 1 mile each day, everyday for 2017. I fully accept that some days may well be slow or ill and there will certainly be bad weather but it is also achievable. I’m going to try to blog and track it as much as possible, come along it should be fun!
My name is Dr Ed Wright, a fairly average person living in North Wales; who every so often wonders what things are capable of, and takes on large/silly tasks for no discernible reason.
In order to try to do some good along the way and to provide the incentive when times are tough, I have decided to do this for charity. If you feel like sponsoring me please do, and no worries if you don't! If you do all the money will go to The Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it :)
Three babies are born with a cleft lip and/or palate every day in the UK, and they face a 20-year treatment pathway which can continue well into adulthood. The Cleft Lip & Palate Association is here to make sure no one has to go through this alone.
Every donation will help CLAPA to continue to provide specialist, targeted services to give people affected by cleft the knowledge and emotional support they need, while their UK-wide community brings together people from all walks of life to share experiences and learn to cope.
