Good morning chickens! I am really excited to tell you ladies that I’m on the committee of the Walkabout Foundation’s annual flagship event, LONDON WALKABOUT, a 5k family fun walk in Hyde Park on Saturday, September 27th at 11am. Many of you may have attended Walkabout’s events in the past and know that this is a charity I hold very dear to my heart.
Walkabout Foundation is a charity started by siblings Luis and Carolina Gonzalez Bunster after their brother, Luis sustained a spinal cord injury which left him paralyzed from the chest down. Their mission is to fund research to find a cure for paralysis and to donate wheelchairs to people in need all over the world. They’ve donated over 5,000 chairs in over 15 countries in the span of 4 years and they’ve funded millions in paralysis research.
My family is so excited to be taking part in this year’s superhero-themed walk and I am challenging you AG READERS and your family to become #WALKABOUTHEROES for the day and join us!
Hundreds of people will walk together for those that can’t – in superhero capes while collecting superhero powers along the route with Sharky & George! And after making the 5k loop around the Serpentine Lake, you can refuel with a picnic lunch from La Bottega, hydrate with Rebel Kitchen, take your nails to the next level with Little Bu, stretch out your mega muscles in a yoga class with KX and recharge to the swing and jazz music of a live band and take part in many more fun-filled activities!
So, as a well-known hero once said, “with great power comes great responsibility,” so grab your capes, put on your walking shoes, and sign up your family today! There are TWO ways to sign up: 1) you can register directly with me and I’ll send you a sponsorship pack with a pedometer, fundraising booklet and summer training program (email firstname.lastname@example.org) or 2) you can sign up online by visiting https://uk.walkaboutfoundation.org/events/london-walkabout-2014.html. If you do sign up online, please do let me know in an email, or comments below.
Assemble your heroes and hurry to sign up because all the early birds to register get a free goody bag and a cape on the day of the walk!!
