Tanya and Anna’s 2.6 challenge

On Sunday 26 April, Tanya Holloway and I took part in this challenge. We started from our own homes running 1/2 mile laps of the block, keeping a safe distance through out. The aim was to raise money for a charity that’s personal to Tanya (the Danny Green Fund). We had amazing local support with neighbours sitting outside their houses cheering us on. We even had a sprinkler station to keep us cool as it was a very warm morning. Tom Pullinger recorded our challenge via a drone (footage on Tanya’s Facebook page). So far we have raised over £1,000 – the generosity has been unbelievable.

Yesterday Noah joined me for my 26.2 minutes:
