Monday Funday! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I sometimes talk about my husband, Luke (okay, maybe a bunch), but he’s super great. There are many reasons why my hubby is fantastic, but today I want to talk about one way in particular.
Luke, is participating in his first half-marathon EVER and he is going to be raising funds for Cancer Research UK in honour of my late father, Alan Campbell, who passed away from colorectal cancer in October 2011. Glasgow is host to the Great Scottish Run — a half-marathon and 10k — where runners can participate for their own personal record, fun, and to raise money for charities of their choosing.
My father was a very charitable man and his giving nature wasn’t limited to holidays or once or twice a year events — he gave to others in need whenever he could. So, it’s wonderful that Luke is going to honour his memory and run to raise money for a very good cause!
Since Luke is going to be raising funds for charity, it would be great if he could receive support and sponsorship! Even though this is a UK-based event, you can still donate in other currencies, and every bit helps! I am going to place a link on the right-hand sidebar for people who are interested in donating (whatever you can) to Luke for the big day on October 4, 2015! Or you can donate today by clicking here!
I am very proud of Luke, he’s been training hard for this run and it’s wonderful that he’s chosen to raise money for a cause that is very near and dear to our family!
Thanking you all in advance for helping out, and please tweet this link to help us spread the word and help Luke to raise the most that he can for Cancer Research UK.[Tweet “Support Luke and help fight cancer at @GreatScotRun https://www.justgiving.com/lukas989 #greatscottishrun #charity #cancerresearchuk”]
Also if you’re a runner (and in the US) you should check out ShoeKicker — it’s basically the Kayak.com of running footwear. ShoeKicker reached out to me to let me know about their site (which just launched last week), and while they don’t have worldwide shipping yet, they are still worth checking out! They have some REALLY good prices and they are a really great shopping resource!
Thank you so much!!! See ya soon!
