I'm running a 10K this Sunday to raise funds for the local hospice and figured why not have a thread dedicated to the charity fund raising events of Darklings.

Kicking things off is this shameless plea to give generously in aid of Katharine House Hospice. To Donate please click here.

Thank you :D

I'm poor as poop, but I slung you a few bucks.

You only need nine(and a half?) more people to give as much as I did to reach your goal!

Thank you so much Amy!

I should of set the page up ages ago, therefore any donations are gratefully received. Also it brightened my day to see a fellow Darkling getting the ball rolling :)

Thanks to Amy, Friz and Beautysleep for the donations. I eventually got round in about 56 minutes - The route reminded me of school cross country runs, the heat reminded me of summer (not what I expected in October).

Didn't manage to do this before the run, but congrats on a great time!

Really good effort (not sure if I would have even crossed the finish line...) and well done for doing this for such a great cause :D

Thank you for the donation and the kind words Love On The Rocks.

There were times that I didn't think I'd make it to the line and had to slow to a brisk walk in order to catch my breath. The competitor in me was initially disappointed but on reflection a time of 55m41s wasn't too bad considering I wasn't used to the terrain and disjointed training over the last couple of weeks.

I'm having a rest this week, ahead of upping training for a half-marathon next March.

I was hoping someone else would have taken on this thread - After charity donations or even plugging a Kickstarter (or similar) for their album - I know you're a talented bunch!

Instead I'm back, this time upping the distance to 13.11 miles as I take on the Stafford Half Marathon in March
Again I'll be running to raise funds for the local hospice - Katharine House Hospice

As an added incentive, I've decided that anyone that makes a donation can choose a track for my running playlist on the day. All I ask is that song choices be of a reasonable length (so no 20 minute epics), I can rely on you for some Rock - right? ;)
To make a Donation (and enter your choice of track) please click here.

Thank you :D

*Bump*

This is my sole fundraiser for 2014 -

Half Marathon is less than 2 weeks away (March 16th). Anyone care to make a donation and select a Rock (or other) Song for me to run to?
I already have Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi which is kind of appropriate, especially as I'm going to attempt to improve on my time from my last Half Marathon 25 years ago.

Well that didn't go to plan. Went off too quick and most my training went out the window.
Eventually finished in 1hr 52mins 31 seconds.

I'm going to beg now too. Some people are trying to raise money to put together a little trailer for a film that they want to enter into a competition for next year and need a bit of scratch to rent equipment and build costumes for the shoot. I'm totally not begging because I got cast as the lead actor... but... it would be cool if these dudes didn't go broke to make this. Our Province cut all support for filmmakers a few years ago. Not asking for much. $5 to $10 from a lot of people can go a long way.
