I’m just coming up to my first completed month doing the #Miles4MAMA challenge, which sees me covering 1500 miles in just 10 months for the superb MAMA Academy. MAMA Academy are a charity that are helping more babies arrive safely, by and the #Mile4MAMA challenge is raising money for their Made To Measure campaign, promising to save the lives of 1000 babies lives through the nationwide uptake of customised growth charts, which can better detect growth restricted babies, a key early warning for stillbirth. I am honoured to be an ambassador for this superb charity that really have babies, mums and midwives interests at heart.
I started the challenge in the 13th of September and will be finishing on the 13th of July next year. So how have I found my first 24 days? Well, not too hard. Just recording my walks on the school run and errands around town, as well as taking the dog on some brisk walks have all added up to…. *drum roll please*… 130 miles!!! I am actually quite pleased with this. As I am only 24 days in, and If I can do this mileage (and a bit more) each month, I will smash my target!
Not too bad I don’t think. If you would like to sponsor me on my challenge you can give here on our fundraising page. Even if it’s just £1, you really will be helping to save babies lives. Don’t forget to Gift Aid it, if you are a UK tax payer, as this adds an extra 25p from the government for every £1 that you donate.
I’m not the only blogger sweating it out for the #Miles4MAMA challenge either. You can check out these other super bloggers who are also doing their bit. Jenny who blogs at Great North Mum. Vivienne who blogs at Another Bun. Laura at Life With Baby Kicks. And Trudy at Titanium Trudy.
