In 2015 I ran the Reading half-marathon with a friend and we raised a fantastic amount of money for a charity close to her heart. 5 years on, I'm ready to run again!
I'm taking on the challenge of the Bristol half-marathon in September, and would love to raise money for a great cause again. I've chosen Babbasa, a Bristol-based organisation that supports and nurtures the individual talent and potential of disadvantaged young people around Bristol.
I would absolutely love to receive any sort of donation you're able to give - Babbasa's BeyondCOVID19 appeal is particularly important as it's helping to protect young people, right now, from the struggles and secondary consequences that the pandemic is disproportionately having on them. Please read more here: https://babbasa.com/get-involved/beyond-covid-appeal/
If you are currently struggling to donate money, I'd love you to donate me a song to my half-marathon playlist here: https://open.spotify.com/user/ryanhemper/playlist/41L8XBiGji5rBOq68iBbc4 and I will match every song on the playlist with £5, until my playlist runtime matches my half-marathon runtime. If you do manage to donate, I'd love a song anyway! Make sure you let me know what song you've donated so I can thank you properly too, and think of you when it comes on during the race! Or, if you can't add it (Spotify is odd) send me your song donation and I'll add it!
And just a final note, if the half-marathon is cancelled, I will still run the distance on the day!
Donating £5 per song donated to me for yesterday's half - thanks to my mum, Amy, Charlie and Hollie <3
Bonus funds for being a top dolla gal and completing your first of two!!!
Best of luck Saskia!
Hi everyone, unfortunately I've just found out the Bristol Half Marathon is cancelled. I will still be fundraising and running the 21.098km on 27th September so please consider donating still!
