CHRIS' 20 FOR 20
My goal at the beginning of the year was to run 20 half marathons in 2020 for the Bringing Back a Smile charity because they do such a fantastic job helping children and their families who are affected by serious or terminal illness
Bringing Back a Smile was formed in 2017 by Kevin Hill. The charity’s focus is to help raise funds for children and adults with life-threatening illnesses to give them and their families a break away from the gruelling treatment they often undertake daily.
My company Wealth of Advice felt very passionately about the work being done by Kevin and the team and really wanted to help – that’s why we’ve become the charity’s headline sponsor.
Our aim was to fundraise throughout the year to support Bringing Back a Smile’s efforts to buy a caravan at Primrose Valley – this will then be available to families throughout the year to provide them with a welcome retreat and somewhere to relax between their treatment cycles.
Due to the Covid pandemic, my planned half-marathons were cancelled and I had to go solo. On the 12th December 2020 I completed my twentieth and final half marathon of the year and have reached my target of £5,000 for the charity.
I would like to thank everyone that has supported me and donated, if you would still like to donate please follow the JustGiving link.
