Currently raised £169 which is amazing considering this is week one. I promise to keep on pushing myself for this amazing charity. Thank you so much to everyone that has donated so far. 

I will post my weight loss at the end of every two weeks.

Initial £ 500 target hit in just over two weeks!! New stretch target

1624520669_%C2%A3500_hit.jpg

Genuinely cannot quite believe it, but yesterday we hit my first initial fund raising target of £500 in 2 weeks and 2 days, its really quite remarkable.

Thank you so much to the anonymous donator who donated £ 160.00, you know who you are and I promise not to let you or anyone down.

***Crowdfunder wont allow me to put a stretch target, so I have had to increase the original target***

The new target may seem ambitious, however i'm sure we can achieve it. £ 2,022 means for every mile completed £1 will be raised for Derian House. This is a year long project and this extra push will really help me through the cold winter days and dark nights approaching. I wont slow down because the initial target has been achieved and wont give up until it is out of my control.

Thank you once again for your continued support, you have all been amazing. 

One step at a time, we go again! ????????????????

Hi,

For those of you that don’t know me I’m James. Husband to Laura and father to Sophia. I’m just your average 33 year old unfit bloke carrying a few extra pounds due to an unhealthy diet.

Being overweight on the wrong side of 30 but still being young enough to tackle life I’ve decided that it is time to make some positive changes to myself through exercise. In order to do this I feel I need to set some clear goals which will allow me to push myself.

That being said I have decided that over the next 365 days I will collectively cover 2022 miles. This will be done through Walking, Running and Cycling. Meaning I will need to cover at least 5.54 miles a day to achieve my goal.

With this personal challenge I am hoping for people to sponsor my exercises with all proceeds going to Derian House Children’s Hospice. Derian House help children and young people, whose lives are too short, to make happy memories in an environment of fun, respect and above all, high quality care. Derian House Children’s Hospice looks after children and young people living with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions (as well as their siblings, parents and grandparents). They do this in a variety of ways… For more information on Derian House please check out their website www.derianhouse.co.uk. 

 

Having raised money for Derian house before, I know how much donations big or small can make such a positive impact to a child or family member. Life is about making memories no matter what the timescale. I have set an initial target of £500 over the year, but it would be would be amazing if I could raise £1 for every mile covered.

Rules

  • Daily steps do not count (Walking around work, shopping, house)

  • Each exercise has to be GPS tracked (Though my watch)

  • Daily average is 5.54 though not set.

  • Daily average variance can be caught up.

  • All workouts and variances will be recorded.

  • 2022 miles must be completed by 08/06/2022

  • Cycling - The total miles covered is only worth half of the total cycled. So every 2 miles is only worth 1 mile towards to 2022 total.

Derian House Children’s Hospice is a company Limited by guarantee in England (No. 2650110) and a charity registered in England and Wales (No. 1005165). Registered Office: Chancery Road, Astley Village, Chorley, Lancashire PR7 1DH. 

 

Thank you for your support
