My son Dexter (aged 6) and I have decided to take on a challenge during lockdown. We wanted to challenge ourselves and hopefully help to raise some money for our local hospital Musgrove. We are aiming to run a half marathon in our garden in 5 days starting 13/4/2020.
We have worked out the length of our garden from Shed to Decking area to be 94.5 feet. We have done our research and a half marathon totals 69,218 feet so therefore we need to complete 733 lengths over 5 days. We have broken this down into:
- Monday – 150 lengths
- Tuesday 150 Lengths
- Wednesday – 160 Lengths
- Thursday 153 Lengths
- Friday 120 Lengths
We are going to Facebook live our progress each day at 10am so you can watch us completing the challenge and more importantly commenting so we can give shout outs and keep us motivated!
We have set a £100 fundraising target and hope you can get behind us and give anything big or small to help towards the goal!
Thanks so much and we hope this goes a little way to show our appreciation to our amazing NHS staff who are real modern day heroes!
Daddy and Dexter
