Charity Round-up: Exercising for charity

charity blog posts sliderWhat is the connection between taking exercise and charity?  Taking part in a fitness challenge is a great way to capture potential supporters ‘ imaginations and to raise funds for good causes.

Let’s start with Chloe and friends who are responding to the tragic loss of a special little boy by taking on a cycling challenge.  They welcome your involvement whether in terms of pedal power, wacky ideas or donations.  They are raising money for the Histicytosis Research Trust.

Savour this delightful post about how something as simple as a sponsored walk can be a magical experience for families.  This blogger spends her working week with a charity and then takes time out to help with the family at weekends too.

Steph is always an inspiration but did you know she has participated in 3 marathons?  See her stories of each one and how her life has changed along the way too.  Well done Steph on your recent efforts in the London Marathon!

Wendy reminds us that some charities are all about ensuring that we have a lovely outdoors to exercise in.  Learn more about the Woodland Trust in her post.

The Naked Mum tells us how it is never too early to take exercise for charity in her post about the Toddle Waddle which raises vital funds for the Meningitis Trust.

If you thought babies can’t take exercise for good causes, check out Pramathon 2013 which is coming up really soon and is a great day out for all the family raising funds for the Genesis Research Trust.

This month, I would love to hear from bloggers who are involved in education, home education or nutrition and would consider raising awareness of Save the Children on their blogs.

Don’t forget we love you to join our Charity Connections group.

    aah thanks for the mention! Training already underway for Marathon #4 – this time it’s Bournemouth and I will be joined by two of my children who will run a 5k the evening before – we’re doing it for THHN, the lovely devon based charity which provides holidays for families like ours!
