The 2.6 Family Challenge for the NHS: Sponsor the Axford Burrell Dodson & Hegarty Team
Hello Lovely Friends and Family,
We would all like to send you a huge thank you for your generosity in supporting our family challenge in aid of the NHS Charities Together.
We had 77 fabulous donors, some anonymous, and raised over £4000. We are fully aware that you are all inundated with requests to help at the moment, so we are really grateful.
Believe it or not, we actually had a lot of fun participating and it was joyous for us to witness, in particular, the oldest, Great Grandpa Peter doing his 26 steps each day in Virginia Water, pushing his wheelchair, and the youngest, Ottilie, doing her first 26 steps pushing her little cart in LA.
We all send love and thanks from the bottom of our hearts.
GO NHS GO!
Peter, John, Carolyn, Minna, Charlie, Finn, Oscar, Lucy, Nathan, Rex, Hux ,Rosie, Tim and Ottilie.
PS We are thrilled to announce that Lucy and Nathan are expecting baby number 3 in November. Due to horrible morning sickness Lucy didn’t quite manage her 26km run, but she tried! However, she did manage to complain to Nathan 26 times a day for 26 days straight! She is now back to normal and raring to go!
Team Axford Burrell Dodson Hegarty comprise of 13 fit and able athletes (some more than others) in all shapes and sizes! We love the NHS. They have looked after us ALL. John worked for them for 30+ years and right now they are on the front line risking their own lives to help and save others.
Thousands of fundraising events have been cancelled due to the pandemic. This includes the London Marathon which should have been on Sunday, 26th April 2020 but has been postponed. To take its place is THE 2.6 CHALLENGE; a national initiative to raise vital funds to help save the UK’s Charities.
We have decided to take on The 2.6 FAMILY Challenge. We have nominated one another to take on a challenge this week involving the number 2 and 6. We will be walking, running, cycling, skipping and somersaulting our way through the week all to raise money for the NHS Charities Together campaign.
Please visit our JustGiving page HERE to sponsor us and please join in and nominate a member of your own family to complete a 2.6 challenge and sponsor them here too!
