Something amazing has been happening amid the wind and rain. Bloggers, mothers, and families have been coming together across the country to raise money in a gigantic relay race from Lands End to John O’ Groats – 3,000 miles – to raise £20 K for Sports Relief.
The relay began on the 12th January in Lands End, and will finish in John O Groats on the 23rd March 2014. You can find the official route details here. And it doesn’t come more imaginative in terms of modes of transport; pushchair pushes, roller blading across the Humber, boating round Bristol, #Honkopoly around London, fancy dress, onesies, bikes, scooters, planes, hiking, rafting and mountain climbing.
#teamhonkrelay involves over 200 bloggers, their friends and families in a route that zig zags up the UK taking in 38 regional teams. Read about the Team Honk Story so far; all the low down on Red Nose Day last year. It’s amazing to think it only took the foresight of three bloggers – Tanya, Annie, and Penny (Team Honk) – to start something very special, and show the power of the parent blogging community in raising awareness for such an important cause as Comic Relief; this is the post I published last year, when Team Honk visited Ghana.
So the big question… What is Sports Relief all about?
The first ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games take place from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March 2014. The public can join the fun and games by running, swimming or cycling their way to raising cash at over a thousand venues around the country, including the landmark events at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
As one of the biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active raise cash and change lives. The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people; both at home in the UK, and across the world.
