As London Marathon became one of many ‘Covid-cancellations’ the 26.2 challenge was launched to help charities that rely on these events for crucial fundraising. It has been great to see Chasers getting involved and taking on incredible challenges in the name of charity!
Our Beginner's leader Laurie Boult disco-danced an entire Marathon to help Age UK's Coronavirus Emergency Appeal. Lots of Chaser's joined in by Zoom, you can sponsor her here.
Chris Zair is also taking on the epic challenge of ‘Lockdown LEJOG’. He plans to cycle the distance from Land's End to John O’Groats (838 miles / 16,000m of climbing) from the confines of his home in around 7 days. He is raising money for NHS Charities Together. Today is day 5 for Chris and he is ‘virtually’ setting off from Ettrick in Selkirk, you can donate here.
Well done to all of the Chasers who are creating so much positivity right now!
This Saturday (2 May) we are holding an online coffee morning via Zoom at 10:30am. Join us for a catch up!
