Welcome to week ten of your training plan
The plan focuses on building your half marathon running specific fitness over 16 weeks so that by the end you are ready for your event. The plan is progressive but you can jump in at a position that matches your current training load if you are already training.
We will be sending out training plans for the next six weeks via email, if at any point you do not receive your email please contact us.
If you don't like asking for money face to face, there are alternative ways of approaching your fundraising. Why not organise your own event at work, club or school/university? For example: bad hair day, blind date evening, sports tournament, record breaking attempt, fancy dress/dress down day.
If you choose to run your own event and would like helping promoting it, we can help support you by sending branded posters, stickers, balloons and other such branded items. Just let us know what you need.
Diabetes facts and stats
Throughout the weeks we will provide you with some statistics and information about diabetes to help your fundraising message have a greater impact
This week: The cost of diabetes to the NHS is £i million an hour.
On the sponsorship forms and on the online donations, your supporters will be asked if they would like to Gift Aid their donation. Please ensure that as many people as possible tick the Gift Aid box plus give their full name and address (postcodes are essential) as it allows us to claim an extra 25p for every pound raised. It doesn’t cost your supporters any extra to Gift Aid their donation.
