A LAP FOR A LIFE - PARTICIPANTS/SPONSORS REQUIRED

#1
A LAP FOR A LIFE - 28th August 2010 North Inch, Perth.

The aim of this event is to complete one full lap of the North Inch for every serviceman or woman who has lost their life during the current conflict in Afghanistan. Each lap is 1.3 miles and will be run in teams as a relay.

We aim to raise £15,000 to be split equally between Holidays4heroes and BLESMA.

We have a "just giving" page for BLESMA, but due to the fact that hols4h is not yet a registered charity, we are unable to set one up for them.

I will personally be dragging my 54 year old carcass (accompanied by one of the Slingsby Team) around 4 laps - one for each of the 4 Black Watch, 3 Scots who have died. My daughter will be running 10 laps in memory of those from RHF, 2 Scots. There is no minimum or maximum number of laps per person - but we will run, walk or hobble until every life has been remembered.

I would ask -

Please pledge your support by sponsorship

Join us on the day to run, walk, tin-rattle or help man the hols4heroes stall

A dedicated paypal account is being set up to allow direct payments- will post as soon as available.

PLEASE, PLEASE HELP, Thank you

Can easily be arranged - was going to suggest perhaps some post-run drinkies for the ARRSE contingent might be in order; there are some excellent watering holes in Perth.

Edited to add - serious bit of running you d have to do, The rifles have fared rather worse than most

Early morning :bounce: and a request....

Can anyone point me in the direction of a supplier of reasonably priced medals plus ribbons for the participants?? The committee will have to fund these ourselves, so no gold-plated fancy stuff! Thanks

I may be able to make it down for this one to lend a hand.

My knees are unlikely to let me take part but if you send me 2 sponsorship forms I am happy to twist a few arms in sponsoring Owl and Gb.
