BENEFITING: SHELTER BOX USA
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2013
Thanks for taking the time to visit our Crowdrise page!
Some of us have thought about doing this so many times.. others have actually done it before and for the rest of us, this is the year we've decided to really go for it as a group! We are actually going to be running (and hopefully not crawling...!) the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon! We refers to: Anupam Kishore, Michael Blankson, Fahad Khan, Veronica George, Sandra Koepernick and Hina Hussain and chances are if you're reading this, you will know at least one or all of us!
Whilst Anupam and Mike are ambitiously going for the full 42+ kms, the rest of us will either be running 10 kms or the half marathon (21 kms), making it 157+ kms between us! The realisation of what we’ve gotten ourselves into still hasn’t sunk in... although everyone’s reaction when we tell them should probably set alarm bells off... “full marathon?? That’s crazy!” and “wow, rather you than me... good luck!” or “running continuously for how many hours?!! .. exactly the kind of motivational support you need to hear ... and yet here we are, full steam ahead! To be fair the support we get from everyone after that initial reaction is amazing and it really does help in keeping us on track!
Why are we putting ourselves through this momentous task? Well, initially we just wanted to see if we could run the distance and took it upon ourselves as a challenge, but then we realised we could actually raise funds for a worthwhile cause at the same time. With the recent tragedy in the Philippines, it seemed fitting to do this for all those people that have been affected in the disaster stricken areas. What better way to bring everyone’s attention to a worthy cause?
And that’s where all of you come in! If we promise to get ourselves round the 157+ kms come December 1st, will you please show your support and donate what you can to this amazing charity... every cent, penny, rupee, dollar, pound or yen really does count and will be appreciated massively!
Thank you so much for all of your support and we hope to see and hear from some of you on the big day!
