The funds are in.

Yesterday 21st of June was a good day in many ways. I feel happy as I always do when the sun is shining. As well as being the Summer Solstice, it was also International Humanist Day. I felt extra happy though as my favourite part of this whole fundraising process arrived. I emailed the funds raised this year to Starfish :D The final total was £400. I cannot stress enough how important this is and how much it means to me. If you have looked at their website you will be aware of all the amazing projects they have done since their inception and all the people in need whom they have helped. They continue to do so and this is made possible due to our help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will return when I know where I am running next year. Peace and health go with you.

New gear

I've just found an online bargain and thus made a purchase. Its only on for a few days but there is a sale on a women's sleeveless running top. it has the slogan ''This girl loves running''. There was a choice of 2 colours so I've gone for one of each. Black and cherry. I shall post pictures and I am excited for them to arrive. Its about time I got some new running shoes too ;) Take care!

Updates on fundraising initiatives.

Hi readers,

First of all, thank you for visiting my blog. I have updated my website again and tweeked out all the bugs so now all photo's etc are visible. Please visit the 'about me' page to see me with Rutger Hauer.They are treasured memories and I feel very proud and lucky to say I have attended the last 2 fundraisers in the US as prt of the Starfish team. Always happy to help! You can see my report from my last run in Chester which was 3 weeks ago now. I am still collecting sponsorship for this and it is not too late if you want to sponsor me which means you will be helping people globally in their fight against AIDS/HIV. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I also want to tell you about another fundraising initiative which is currently ongoing. My friend John Schneiderwind is on a month long diet leading to a lifestyle change and is feeling better already. He is asking for $ per pound of weight loss and is aiming to lose 20 pounds. He is a week into this initiative and I believe today is weigh day so I can't wait to hear how he is doing thus far! Please consider sponsoring him. He is writing a fantastic blog about his experiences which you can find here:

As you can see he raisng funds for The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association too. Please cheer him on and support him.
We both thank you and just by sharing this post and spreading the word about all that Starfish do you are helping.
