I'm challenging myself to do a dance a day for 365 days and hope to raise money by asking people to sponsor me.
I think the work Homestart do is important as I struggled when my children were young and would have been lost without the support that I recieved from family and friends and others around me. I want to raise money to help Homestart to continue with the valuable work that they do supporting families.
One of the reasons I struggled was that I had undiagnosed health conditions. Because of these health conditions I struggle to exercise and stay active and can only do very small amounts of activity. I have been dancing for about 15 years, but haven't been to a class since 2014 and struggle to dance for very long because of my health. However, I still love to dance, and I've found that doing a little bit on a regular basis can help my health. In 2018 I saw a challenge to those with health issues, who aren't able to do things like run marathons or climb mountains, to do something manageable every day for a month as a sponsored event. I decided to try this with dance. I found this beneficial, and hoped to continue dancing most days at the end of the challenge, but struggled to maintain motivation and my movement was limited by further health complications. Last year I had an abdominal operation and I told myself that, once I'd given myself a year to heal, I'd challenge myself to do a dance a day for a year to hopefully improve my physical and mental health and raise money for good causes.
1 year and 2 months later I'm now making this challenge a reality. Please help me to stay motivated and support Homestart by sponsoring me.
Keep going hun your doing great. Love watching your dancing and all your outfits. Xxx
