Doing my bit for charity.

Food for the soul.

Along with eating good food comes the exercise needed to burn it off. Being able to do it and raise money for charity is an added bonus.

After fattening everyone around me over Chinese New Year, I have been conned, with the utmost reluctance I am, esthusiactically and willingly joining them in their efforts to lose the excess weight.

Exercise is a good thing. And being able to exercise and raise money at the same time makes it all so much better. Which is why I have signed up as a participent for the Colchester Mile Run which is organised under the Sport Relief Programme. The run will be held on the 16th of March 2008.

According to the website:
"Comic Relief spends the money raised through Sport Relief to help vulnerable people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and in the world's poorest countries."

Sounds good to me. I'll be doing my bit for the world just by running. Whee!

Each participant has been allocated their own fundraising page. Here's mine:

Please do visit and please donate generously =) Or not so generously if you can't afford it. Every little bit helps, just give what you can.

Being the simply lazy unfit person that I am, I'm only running one mile (which is about 1.6 kilometers). But as an added incentive for my readers, if my donations are over 70 British Pounds, I will run the mile in a Chef's Outfit. Or at the very least a pretty apron =P. It all depends on how fast donations roll in and how much time I have to prepare. And I will post photos. All donations should however be made from the heart, not because you want to see me make a fool of myself.

Much love,
Bee Nee
