Running for the first time in years to raise money for Crisis UK and Plumpton Primary School.

by Anna McQuaid in Lewes, England, United Kingdom

I wanted to raise some money for charity this year and I was looking for a challenge ...

I had to quit running over 12 years ago due to problems with my knees, my hips, my back, my ankles and the rest. Years of physio and Pilates later, I thought I might try again, so I booked myself in for the Sussex Downs Half Marathon - the 12.5k route - 1km for each year since I last did a run like this.

I seriously didn't know if I could manage it, as 'training' didn't go too well(!), so I didn't send this email out before. I've just come back from running in the rain and am proud to say ... I smashed it! 

I'm gonna hurt tomorrow so please help make it all worthwhile...Surely it's worth an email to ask if you would please donate money to two great causes...

Firstly, 50% of any money raised will go to Crisis UK

No one should be forced to sleep rough. Crisis work side by side with people, throughout the year, to help them rebuild their lives and find a way out of homelessness.

The other 50% will go towards Plumpton Primary School. The PTA at our local school work tirelessly to raise funds to enhance school provisions for every child in the school.  In recent years they've raised enough to provide Music teachers, forest school sessions and transport for school trips. All of these add to every kid's enjoyment of this great school.

Thanks for even reading this! And thanks again if you can donate anything

Best wishes xx

Thanks so much!
