Welcome to week five 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 11 weeks via email, if at any point you do not receive your email please contact us.
Take some time out and evaluate how you are doing.
If you still need some more sponsors try listing all of your social and professional circles. This will help you identify if you really have been to everyone you believe might like to support you.
Watch out next week for new ideas.
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: In twelve years the number of children under 16 that have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes has risen from zero to 2000.
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 28p for every pound raised. It doesn’t cost your supporters any extra to Gift Aid their donation.
