Please sponsor my 30 Day Challenge if you can

OK, I do Bikram Yoga and I love it. For a while now I’ve wanted to do a 30-day Challenge: you do 30 sessions in 30 days, but there’s no point in me doing it just for myself. So….

Please sponsor me doing a 30-day Bikram Yoga Challenge to help raise money for The Princess Royal Trust for Carers.

Being a carer, regardless of your age, is a bloody hard thing to do; so all money will go towards helping someone who is helping someone.

If you want to know why carers of all ages need support, please read this http://www.carers.org/why-do-carers-need-support

I’m doing it in October because that’s when I know I don’t have any prior engagements, and it will be a welcome relief from the cold weather. It seems like a long way away, but in reality I could only get in between 26-36 sessions before October when I will do 30 in a row (and probably change my name by deed poll to Sweaty Betty).

Any amount would help.

Thanks.

PS - Bikram Yoga is the one where you do 26 postures in a room cranked up to 40 deg C / 105 deg F for 90 minutes.

Really good cause and good luck. Just think how flexible you’ll be at the end :wink:

I’ve only been doing it for about 5 weeks, and even the difference in that time is amazing. First couple of sessions I felt like I was going to either throw up or have a heart attack, and I still haven’t managed to do a double yet, but…that’s why it’s not until October.

Plus, I was a carer for my grandma for nearly 2 years when she died aged 89. I was 24-26 at the time, and didn’t have a charity to turn to for help. It’s not easy to look after someone 24/7.

I know a few people looking after elderly or ill parents, so…it seems like a no-brainer. Everyone needs a helping hand every now and again. Maybe with £300 someone will get a day off. :slight_smile:
