Before Christmas you may have seen and read a lot about Tŷ Hafan’s #PreciousMoments campaign- it was a fantastic campaign to appreciate the best of our family. The campaign reinforced everything the Welsh Children’s Hospice does to comfort, care and support life-limited children, young people and their families in the hospice, in the community and in their home, t0 make the most of the time they have left together.Getting involved with the campaign, along with other Welsh bloggers reinforced to me how important it is to support a wide range of charities, those which touch you directly, and those which move you. It is of little use me sitting here fortunate, lucky, I need to get off my backside and do something.
Fortunately for me, there was a day when another blogger was feeling as spirited, and so Alina from Cookies and Cwtches and I bumped into each other at Tŷ Hafan in Sully, and by the end of a meeting with the fantastic team, I found myself nodding along, a Rainbow Run would definitely be a good idea.Last summer my Instagram had been filled with the most glorious photos- people challenging themselves and having great fun in the process-in Wales it was all about Tŷ Hafan’s Rainbow Run at Pendine Sands.So how could this not be a good idea?
Especially because this year, along with other runs across South Wales, Tŷ Hafan will be taking over Barry Island on 7th May.
There’s really no way to say ‘no’.
A Rainbow Run. On ‘Gavin & Stacey’ home turf. The only answer is ‘Yes’.
And so as to do a job well, Alina and I will be warming up with a bit of fundraising fun with Team Honk for Sport Relief, and then, for me, it is the hard stuff.
I want to use this opportunity to not struggle through a 5K run, I may be bringing my seven-year old for support (who knows, I might have roped the five year-olds in by then!), but I don’t want to be catching my breath, I want to be showing the children why it’s good to stay healthy, and be happy to be healthy.
And of course, I want hubby to take some fab photos of me in all my rainbow glory.So, why not join me? Or join in one of the other runs across South Wales?
I’ll be back, with updates on my fitness, and maybe, when you see what a sad state of affairs it really is, you might pledge a little to spur me on?
