Couch to 5k for Edie May

Spider-Ede’s great Aunty, Sarah, is starting a Couch to 5k for Edie to help raise funds for our Spider-Ede Appeal. Below is her message:

Couch to 5k for Edie May – it may not sound much to some but for me, the idea of running 5k is quite huge. I may have run 5km’s without an issue when I was a teenager, but I’m not a teenager anymore (no matter how much I like to think I am!). I live a fairly sendentary lifestyle, working on a computer all day, from home, and the school run involves a 2 minute walk, maybe 3 if we’ve forgotten something! After 12 years of no real exercise besides walking, and 3 kids (two came at once!), it’s time to make a change. I’ve said this before but this time there’s a bigger motivation and that’s to help raise funds for Edie’s treatment. We need to get her to Mexico and we need to keep getting donations in to keep the treatment going over the next year.

I’d love to run a 10k race, maybe later in the year, but for now the plan is couch to 5k and I’m signing up to the Liverpool 5k on 5th May (my birthday!).

If you could sponsor me that would be amazing. I have also set up a diary for progress on this and welcome anyone to join me with this. You can read about the weekly progress at Couch to 5k for Edie May.

You can sponsor Sarah on the Couch to 5k for Edie May donation page. Drop us a message if you’d like to join the Couch to 5k group.
