Thanks for visiting my JustGiving page. My plan for the 15th June is to hold a Loopathon at the Ocean Elements centre in Vassiliki. I am raising money for W4CR (Watersports For Cancer Research).
Personally, i'll be attempting to do 100 forward loops in a day - or as many as I can squeeze in while the wind is there. (For my non-windsurfing friends, that is a whole front flip with my board and sail x 100!)
To add to the challenge, if I hit my £500 fundraising target, i'll do the whole thing in Speedos. If that isn't an incentive to dig deep and donate, I don't know what is!
If the sight of me in Speedos is something you'd rather not see, I will also accept donations in favour of a wetsuit or boardies.
If the wind doesn't show up (June is a great month for wind, so it should do) then I will attempt this on the next windy day.
To fit in with the Sunrise to Sunset theme, we will be running a 'dawn raid' SUP cruise. Sunrise will be at around 6am - and we will be on the water to welcome it as we paddle around the bay.
Hopefully I will see some of you in resort for the big day. For those who won't be in Vass, I will be filming and photographing the whole day so everyone can see how we get on. You can expect plenty of cringeworthy Speedo shots!
Thanks in advance for any donation you can spare and don't forget to sign up for GiftAid.
A massive thank you for the idea must go to Sam Ross and John Palmer, who originally did this a few years ago. Check out how they got on: http://vimeo.com/11599397
P.S. I will be posting updates on this page, but you can keep track of my campaign through a few other sources too:
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
