I can think of no better motivation to keep running and get fit than to do it not just for me, but for the kind and wonderful people in my community. My pledge is to run 5km 365 times in 2018 and to raise as much money as I can for the Open Door and help provide places and support for those who need it most. I think more should be done to give back to our amazing older generation and this is my way to help.

Event details

Run 5km every day for 1 year

I pledge to run 5km 365 times in 2018. I will try to run each and every day and track it on strava so I can post my progress. I will also take pictures as I expect I will become much fitter and healthier in my mission!
