Universal Chance

We fund community projects to build brighter futures

Story

Hi everyone, thanks for popping by and visiting my Just Giving page.

As you probably know by now I signed up to this challenge in July because Rich told me about it and after a few glasses of wine (or bottles, who's counting?) it sounded like fun.

12 weeks later (so far) and I've trained five times a week, got up at 6am, drank nasty protein shakes, stopped drinking and been punched in the face frankly more than is at all necessary in a lifetime. It's been much much harder than I had ever imagined (if I had stopped to imagine-  which I didn't!) but also one of the best experiences - I've found that I can do many more things than I ever thought I could, including losing 20lbs (and counting!), writing a blog for the Huffington Post on our journey and attempting a skydive (actually that was unrelated but I just thought I'd slip it in there)

I started this challenge and kept at it because there was no way I was letting myself or my friends down -  but now with four weeks to go it's all about raising the money Universal Chance needs for the Buhinga School project - as much as we possibly can.

Your donations make all those blood sweat and tears worth it!
