Sorry to ask.. cheeky I know when there are, no doubt, quite a few of us doing it, but I have no sponsors yet. Will get some from family but they are always sponsoring my kids for different things at school so I can't expect much.

If I could write a few people down for having sponsored me a pound I would be very I am doing the Herne Bay event on 17th July.

Just thought.. I need to prove this really don't I? Or I could be just asking for donations to the SleepyJess Fund! How can I prove I am doing the run? (I will very probably walking it actually due to my levels of extreme unfit-ness!! )

I'll sponsor you because I'd like to be doing the run and I'm not this year (is it too late to enter?)

Gobbledigook Tue 24-May-05 12:19:32

Just looked and I've missed my local one so yep, I'll sponsor you!

There must be advice on 'proving' that the money is going to charity on the Race For Life website ? Maybe the sponsor money could be put into a Paypal or other account and passed straight over to the charity with a reciept obtained ? I'll look into it

I think it may be Gobbledigook. I keep seeing event posters up with 'FULL' on them, but you could phone them and ask.

Thank you! I have just seen than I can set up a page on the RaceForLife website .. think I will try to do that. will get back to you on it..

You can see I am for real now guys! PLEEEEASE consider sponsoring me.. £1 or 50p is fine!! I would love to raise £100! All the fundraising I have ever done for as long I can remember has been for cystic fibrosis (as DS1 has CF) but would like to help a cancer charity for a change for obvious reasons, because it affects so many people, not least my dad who has prostate cancer,

Will keep bumping! Please bump for me if you think about it. xx

SleepyJess - I won't sponsor you as I'm doing it myself (on 12th June) and struggling to get spinsors myself - just wanted to wish you luck. It's a great day - you'll enjoy it
