Run To Remember: 250 Miles, 125 Days!

Could you run 2 miles?
Could you run 2 miles every day a week?
Could you run 2 miles every day for a month?
Could you run 2 miles every single day for 125 days?

You may remember my post 1 Year On.. which was dedicated to PC's Fiona Bone & Nicola Hughes and mentions some of the fundraising events I have been involved in since their tragic deaths ,well this blog post is to introduce another one...

The PC Hughes Run To Remember is a challenge open to all Police Officers, PCSO's & Staff to run 250 miles in 125 days starting on the 1 December 2013. That's an average of 2 miles a day, every single day (yes that includes Christmas & New Year) for 125 days... which is until April 4th 2014.

Call me crazy, but I am a proud member of Team 'Mix and Match' which consists of 2 Police Officers, 2 Police Staff & 1 PCSO, and we are running (along side many others) for GMP!

The name mix and match reflects our 'mini team' members,as  some are runners, some are not, and I am probably somewhere in-between, so this is no 'walk in the park' for us! (And I must admit - I am pretty nervous!!) Our aim is raise £500 towards the PC Hughes Memorial Fund, which supports the following 3 charities: COPS, Victim Support & NW Police Benevolent Fund.

So I am asking you now very nicely indeedy if you PLEASE wouldn't mind sponsoring us? It really doesn't matter how big or small the donation, because pennies make pounds, and pounds make a difference!

If you would like to sponsor Team Mix & Match, please click here for our Just Giving page. I will be keeping you all posted right here on our progress as we undertake the challenge!

Thank You x
