A group for anyone in the MK region interested in taking part in one of the many charity events such as 10k runs, half/full marathons, bike rides, etc that take place throughout the year.
These are often outdoor exercise events, but it doesn't have to be limited to those. Many of these events have a minimum sponsorship fundraising target per entrant.
The aim of the group would be to pick some events happening in a location easily accessible from MK, and hopefully get together a few people who'd like to enter those events.
Then brainstorm some fundraising ideas, raise some donations, and go do the event together, generally having fun along the way.
A couple of years ago, I did a 10k run in Oxford, and raised about £400 for the Muscular Dystrophy charity that put the event on. I was quite pleased with that, but thought it would be good to do an event like that as part of a bigger group, and potentially raise more money overall. I have just registered to do the 10k run in the Richmond Runfest in Sep 2017 (Kew Gardens), supporting the British Heart Foundation. This has a minimum sponsorship target of £150, so will be working towards raising that before the event. There are plenty of other charity runs/bike rides etc, and a lot just have a small entrance fee.
So the group is for anyone interested in these type of charity events, to get together, get fit, raise money & enjoy it!
Just came across this event, happening next Sunday, at La Collina in Little Brickhill.
