So, I’ve been privately working away on something exciting that I’m now ready to tell you all about.
This year I’m running the London Marathon to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society, a really deserving cause, and I’m so lucky to have been really well supported again, following last year’s efforts for Spinal Research. However, I also wanted to try something a bit different with my fundraising and to try and give back to everyone who has been so kind to me. Whilst sitting on the foam roller and thinking about what I could do try and raise money for a great charity and make things fun at the same time, it hit me that I could go a little bit old-school. Primary school even. Introducing, the Running for August raffle.
I’ve worked with some of my favourite and very generous brands to secure a line up of fun, foodie and, of course, fitness based prizes to give out to those who have given to me. So far this includes:
- A four-course dinner for two at the Basement Galley supper club.
- A 2 week ‘Body By Lomax’ package which includes the following Lomax services:
- 2x Personal Training sessions per week
- 1x Cycle Blast class per week
- 1x Blast class per week
- 1x Supple Circuit class per week
- 1x Applied Nutrition Consultation
- A pack of 10 classes at Bootcamp Pilates (worth £210).
- A £50 voucher for The Natural Kitchen, Barbican.
- 2 x £30 vouchers for Supernatural Juice Bars
- A Wahoo Fitness TICKR heart-rate monitor
- A Tribeca Studios wristband loaded with a five class pack.
- A week of meals from the Mindful Chef.
- A private yoga lesson with Jiva Yoga.
- A pair of Bowler and Beach swim shorts.
- A Black Sheep Coffee goody bag.
- A Lovo goody bag.
- A set of Henri James boxers.
Pretty fabulous stuff and all for an amazing charity.
