Race at your Pace Challenge – February

After their successful completion of the Race at your Pace challenge in January, sisters Anne-Marie and Leighann Hazler have decided to do this again for February. That means another 75 miles to be completed each throughout the month.

You can sponsor them for this event on their fundraiser page at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/leighannemarie.

Good luck to both of them! We’ll add comments to this page for each weekly update so come back to keep up to date with their progress.

This is a donation run. $5 minimum donation – A $10 donation gets you a free beer or cider post run. Free Hot Chocolate!

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.

Spider-Ede Marathon Madness

Marathon Race

A friend of Spider-Ede’s Mum, Liz Buckley, is planning to run 3 marathons this year to help raise funds for the Spider-Ede Appeal. The marathons will take place at the following locations:

  • Wrexham in March;
  • Blackpool in April;
  • Liverpool in May.

This is Liz’s message:

Thought I’d do 3 marathons because Edie is 3. Going to do them as Spider-Man for obvious reasons. My reason for doing marathons – I did one in Edinburgh in 2011 and vowed I’d never do one again but that was nothing compared to the hell Edie and family are going through now! So, two children later and several years older we’ll see what happens…..it won’t be fast but I’ll get round!!!!

If you want to sponsor Liz you can do this online via her fundraising page on Chuffed.org. Please also leave a comment below to let Liz know you’ve sponsored her online and also to show your support for the huge task ahead of her!

The Great British Beard Off!

Yesterday evening, Steve Furber and Edie’s daddy, Steve Molyneux, both had their head and beards shaved off (by each other!) to help raise funds for the Spider-Ede Appeal. This was shown live on Facebook and the video can be seen on our Facebook page (direct link to video).

If you would like to donate in response to their wonderful gesture, let’s face it those beards took a while to grow and perfect!, please consider making a donation to our Spider-Ede Appeal. The before shots are below and we’ll update this post with after photos as soon as we get them (I think they’ve gone a bit shy!)
