I am very excited about this years Sports Relief. This year it is from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st March. The whole of the UK will come together to get active, raise cash and change lives.
The challenge is to take part in a 1, 3 or 6 mile run at designated places around the UK. It also has a unique history of dedicated people doing extraordinary things to make a difference – from David Walliams’ swim across the English Channel, to Eddie Izzard’s amazing marathon a day around the UK.
All the money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help transform the lives of poor and vulnerable people, both at home and across the world’s poorest countries. For Sport Relief 2010, they are highlighting three issues your cash will help to tackle – children who live on the streets or work in dangerous conditions, people affected by malaria and local UK projects.
I will be running on the day to raise some money for Sport Relief!
