Run 5k Every day for 50 days

So I started thinking….what can I do to celebrate my 50th Birthday.

Something that would be a fair challenge.

Something that maybe others could join in.

Something that could help me raise money for the charity that gloveglu supports in Cape Town- We Love Football Academy – where we teach Township kids life and football values.

And then I had the eureka moment………why not run 5k every day for 50 days to raise 5k…….5 for 50 for 5.

So thats what I intend to do.


Starting on Sunday 16th February 2020 the challenge will begin.

I will write a daily blog here about the experience, the highs and lows, as well as keeping readers on track as we push towards raising £5k (which incendentally is around ZAR100,000 which also has a nice ring to it)
