Weekly roundup 13th May
Hi all, it’s our weekly round-up post to say thank you to everyone! As always, we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who is mentioned below, for those who have attended/supported and for everyone who has made a donation no matter what size. We appreciate you all ❤️💙
See what’s coming up in the next few weeks on our event calendar and drop us a message or contact the host if you’re interested in attending any of them.
On Friday we had the much anticipated Edie’s 11 versus Hollyoaks football match. Despite the predicted rain we had a great turnout! The match was great and Edie’s 11 won 6-4. Over £2500 was raised! Well done to Aunty Kirsty and Joe for pulling off a great evening, all those who helped out before and during the match, and everyone who came!

On Saturday, Sharon Ellis ran the tough mudder half marathon in the Midlands. A hard but amazing run! You can still sponsor her on her fundraising page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sharon-ellis18
This morning, Craig Northwood ran his first 5k on the Sketchers Trail in the Forest of Dean, coming in with a time of 35 minutes. Well done Craig! You can still sponsor him at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/c-northwood
We also want to say a huge thank you to the British Military Fitness members who have raised over £826 running 6000 miles over 15 weeks! This is an amazing distance run by around 20 BMF members.
Next week we have our next nationwide #Bake4Edie event. We have a few public events taking place and several offices getting involved. Please let us know if you’re holding one, no matter what size. Even if it’s with a few friends or family at home! Let’s just get talking about DIPG.
We also want to wish our runners good luck who are running in the Liverpool Rock n Roll Marathon on Sunday (Paul McGregor, Colin O’Hanlon, Steve Copeland, Sammie Dalton & Joanne White) and also Michelle Matthews who is running the Manchester 10k on the same day.
Apologies if we’ve missed anyone out. Please let us know in the comments below. If you are holding a fundraiser or wish to, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can send you our ePack and get you on our events calendar.
