Team Honk is back for a fourth year of bringing bloggers together to fundraise for Comic/Sport Relief. In 2013 we bagged Snowdon, in 2014 we relayed from Lands End to John O Groats and in 2015 we danced ourselves silly at Wembley.
We’ve raised £80,000 to date, but we know there is lots more to be done to help the world’s most underprivileged people.
Not everyone realises that Sport Relief money is divided equally: 50% staying here in the UK, and 50% helping those across the world’s poorest communities. In the last two years alone, money raised through Sport Relief has helped over 11.5 million people.
It is time to do your bit, let’s #passtheproud
This year we’ve banished all limits of time, space and geography.
Anything is possible.
During March people across the world will #passtheproud baton by the power of the internet. Decide what you can do to raise money, sign up for a slot and join the team.
Jo Brand inspires Team Honkers to #passtheproud
Penny, Leyla and Joanne joined Jo brand for a section of her Hell of a Walk: Penny says ‘Jo Brand really inspired me. She has shown everyone that challenges for Sport Relief are completely personal and not just for athletes. Each year Sport Relief pushes me to do something I am proud of. On Friday I asked friends and family for ideas, in a couple of hours a plan had hatched all kinds of fundraising plans. It really is that simple – ask your friends and family to join you!
What are bloggers doing for Sport Relief?
We are amazed at what some of the bloggers who have joined Team Honk so far have already come up with, here is a selection to whet your appetite.
London museum dash
On Sat 19 March Nell from The Pigeon Pair and Me will be doing a day-long dash through London’s museums and art galleries and is looking for Londoners, and culture vultures to join the crew.
‘Will I be able to visit all 300+, during opening hours? Err.. I don’t think so. But between 10 am and 4pm I’m going to visit as many as possible, snapping an exhibit before I leave. I’ll be travelling between the galleries across the capital, using train, bus, tube and my trusty old running feet. Wish me luck! And if like Swazi you’d like to join in with the museum mission, just let them or @team_honk know.’

Becky’s inspiring walk
Becky from A Beautiful Space has set herself a challenging personal goal, has already nearly hit her £300 sponsorship target and is an inspiration to all:
‘I am going to walk 3 miles for sports relief on March 1st this is a massive walk for me I have a paralysed diaphragm and 50% lung capacity so its an effort to exercise or walk very far at all. I may have bitten off a bit too much!!! Aggh best get training!’
