Sarah and I have been offered last minute places to take part in race called 'Survival of the Fittest', to raise money for the Philippines.
We have decided to go for it with very little preparation because we are raising money for a really important Philippines charity and the disaster relief fund. Splitting the funds 50/50.
If you haven't already made a donation to the disaster appeal then please consider sponsoring us.
The charity already sponsors some of the poorest children in the Manilla, and they are now suffering from the recent typhoon.
We are on a team with our friend Josh West and 10 others. Josh took part in a BBC show called 'The toughest place to be a bus driver' (http://danceaid.org/joshuawest/). See http://danceaid.org/philippinesappeal and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLFUgOTHIdE for more details on the Philippines appeal.
The challenge is for Sarah and I to run 10k and conquer 38 obstacles through and around Battersea power station. This video (embedded below) says it all! http://www.mhsurvival.co.uk/london/. It will truly be a test for us, I'm doing it (almost) barefoot! and Sarah's foot injury has meant that she haven't run 10k in over 3 months.
Please consider a £5 or £10 donation or anything you feel you can give. Unfortunately, we have missed the cutoff for creating our own 'just giving' page, so we need you to use Josh's fund raising page instead. We are all called 'team Jeepney', which is the name of the Philippines bus.
IMPORTANT: Please add 'Sponsoring Dinis and Sarah' in the message box.
Here is what we need to do:
