Part of our important work is Research and in 2014 we set up our very own CDH UK Research Fund to enable us to fund worthwhile research projects. To help us raise money for this fund we have founded our virtual Marathon in a Month event called Run 4 Research 4 CDH. This is an ongoing fundraising event where you start on the first day of any month and finish on the last day. All you need is a mobile app that records mileage and dates and you simply add the evidence to your fundraising page as you go. There is no minimum or maximum amount to raise, but to receive a certificate, you must raise at least £20 in the month that you run and to receive a medal you must raise £100 in the month. A running vest or t shirt is also available for a £10 donation before you start. We also believe that this is an excellent way to keep active and encourage wellbeing. Remember, you can walk it too if you are unable to jog or run and dogs, wheelchairs and prams are encouraged to participate too! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any further details and to request vests or t-shirts or certificates. Please use hashtags #Run4Research4CDH and #marathoninamonth
As with all things that require exertion, please consult your Doctor prior to undertaking any form of exercise that is new or if you have any existing medical conditions.
