Sponsored Slim

View kjb1990's profile

I'm doing a sponsored slim to raise money for FMA UK as a gesture to a close university friend of mine who was diagnosed with FM whilst we were at uni together. The condition can really affect her badly some days. Her birthday falls on Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, and this year it’s her 21st birthday and I thought why not try and raise money for FMA UK as a way of saying "Happy 21st Birthday" and to support awareness day 2011.

My friend was absolutely delighted by the idea and truly touched and therefore I’m taking up the challenge of a sponsored slim as I think it is something a bit different and something more challenging than other sponsored events. I've had some small business cards printed to hand out and pin up in places of work and interest around where I live and a T-shirt made up for myself to wear during training and exercise, and when I’m out and about, to advertise my challenge.

I need sponsors to give as much or as little as they can for my challenge so that I can stay motivated and raring. I'm looking to lose at least 28lbs, so there's plenty of work to be done! I have a blog which I am updating very regularly for people to see my progress and current weight loss and also a JustGiving page so that people can donate online. I am trying to raise £250 for FMA UK but would love to make more than that total if I can.
