I ran the London marathon for Girlguiding
For Sam, Brownie Leader, running the marathon was a chance to support Girlguiding and achieve a life-long goal!
I will never forget the marathon and will cherish the day forever.
I've dreamt of running the London marathon since I was a little girl, so to raise money for Girlguiding and to run it this year was a dream come true.
I will never forget the marathon and will cherish the day forever. It brought a tear to my eye - the whole experience was amazing, with strangers shouting your name. I now want to do it all again!
Support from the fundraising team
I had so much support with my fundraising. I would advise anyone to gather a team to support you with planning and running events. I found the best way to fundraise is to get out there - I held events such as a disco, a zumbathon and a bingo night, and raised personal sponsorship from friends, work and family. What was brill was that I raised £1,200. I need to thank my fundraising team and the whole of Girlguiding Lancashire North West for their support. I am blessed to be part of this County.
Run a marathon for Girlguiding
The £1,200 Sam raised by running the marathon is now helping even more girls enjoy the adventures of guiding. You can make a difference too!
