Over the past two years, my friend and I have embarked on a heartfelt journey to raise funds for various charities, and we are thrilled to have recently achieved a significant milestone of £10,000 in total donations.
To express our gratitude to all those who have supported, donated, and cheered us on, we hosted a memorable celebration.
In 2021, our fundraising journey began with squatting for Teenage Cancer Trust, running a mile every day for a month in support of MIND, and covering 100km to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. Together, we raised an impressive £3,048 for these vital causes.
In 2022, our focus shifted to supporting Crohn’s & Colitis UK. We dedicated ourselves to running two miles every day, organized a successful Just Giving page, completed a challenging 10k race, and conquered the Yorkshire 10-miles. Thanks to the generosity and support of our community, we raised an amazing £3,052.
This year, in 2023, we kept the momentum going, continuing our mission to make a difference. We covered 100 miles in March to support dementia awareness, undertook the Three Peaks Challenge in honor of Nikki Waterhouse, and recently completed the York 10K and a half marathon to raise funds for Parkinson’s, successfully raising £1,740.
Our next exciting challenge on the horizon is the Yorkshire 10 Miles, all in support of Andy’s Man Club. We remain committed to our mission of fundraising for important causes and making a positive impact on our community.
The celebratory party we hosted was a wonderful way to thank everyone who has stood by us on this journey, showing them how deeply we appreciate their support and kindness. As a testament to our efforts, we are honored to share that we have been shortlisted for a York Community Pride award.
We believe that our story can inspire others in the community to get involved, support local charities, and create positive change. We would be delighted if YorkMIX could feature our journey and celebration in an upcoming article.
If you require any additional information, interviews, or photographs, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are excited to share our story and motivate others to join us in giving back to our wonderful community.
Thank you for considering our story, and we look forward to the possibility of being featured in YorkMIX.
