Greenfingers Charity supporter, Kate Ebbens, who has vowed to spend her 2024 running every single day with the aim of raising thousands for the children’s hospice garden charity, reports on how the first two months of her challenge has gone. Kate is hoping to raise as much as £10,000 in 366 days.
Kate said: “Now 40+ days into my running challenge and over 200km run with hopefully some of the worst of the weather behind me and the days are getting lighter and I really enjoying the daily running.
“A huge thanks to my sponsor this month Scotsdale Garden Centre, MeadowView, and all those other very kind donations have taken the total to £7,504!
“As we enter the next 40 days of Lent maybe you would like to join me and take up an activity for the next 40 days until Easter, either walking, sit-ups, planking anything with some kind of exercise and you can do EVERY day.
“I forgot it was a Leap Year so I am now 366 days of running and on Thursday 29th February I will be running with some of the staff from Scotsale Garden centre if you want to join me, we will start at 10.00am.
“My next official 10K run is the London Winter Run 25th February and will be working hard to improve on my last time and getting to speak to people about the Greenfingers Charity.
“I have now filled all my sponsorship places for Garden centres however there are some months for suppliers that would be greatly appreciated.
“Thankyou for all your support and so very grateful. I will keep on running.”
