Why you should raise sponsorship?
A personal message from ex patient Sarah Toll.
"It is possible that as an entrant to the Herts 10K you will have been asked 'why do you want to run?' and the answer can only lie within. Your motavation might be to train your mind to free itself from the limitations of your body (as it is in my case), or it might be something more tangebile such as the desire to raise money for for IRGH charity - maybe even a lost bet! Regardless of where your desire to compete the Herts 10K comes from I wonder if it is possible for you to understand the enormity of good you are doing and the impact signing your name to take part will have on the lives of many people.
Rather like throwing a stone into a mill pond, every penny of your £17.00 registration fee will set off many ripples that will touch the lives of a number of people. Unwittingly you have already touched my life, and we haven't met yet! I can honestly say that I would not be limbering up and looking forward to the run if it weren't for the fact IRGH provide the services they do, as with their help I am recovering from cancer and wrestling the demon side effects that come from the treatment.
There are no words to quantify the difference IRGH have made to my life and I am someone who has been incredibly lucky, not everyone who is looked after by them has the choice to take part in a 10K run! If I had the oppurtunity to thank every one of you individually I would (I'd probably hug you too if that's OK); and in the same breath I would plead with you to try and get an extra 20 quid or so .
Your answer to why you want to run could also include that you want to make a difference - to someone who has no choice."
Raising money is easy and fun. Just ask your friends and family to support you. We simply can not afford to continue to run our services if we do not raise enough money.
