Some of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter (@BlazingMinds) may have seen me mention something about a Charity Walk that I’ve been organising recently.
The Story Behind The Snowdon Walk
A little while back while out swimming with friends we started talking about walking up Snowdon in North Wales, great idea, then I thought, why don’t we do it for charity! That way we can have some fun doing it and we can also do it for a good cause.
So I got in touch with our local Abandoned Animals Association and asked if they would like us to do a sponsored walk for them, thankfully they said yes, so I set up an appointment to pop on to see them and their fundraiser to organise the walk and get some sponsor forms to raise some money
Why Chose The Abandoned Animals Association?
I’m a dog owner and I can’t stand to see pets with out homes and just abandoned by people and my friends are also pet owners, so it seemed a great, local, charity to raise money for.
When Will The Walk Take Place?
We are hoping to do the walk on 8th September and raise as much as we can for the Abandoned Animals Association, so far there are about 6 of us going on the walk, but it may be more, and it’s estimated that it will take around 5-6 hours to ascend the summit of Snowdon and return.
Walking up Snowdon will be myself, Hannah Brierley, Yasmin Jones, Sue Hodder, Catherine Owen and Christian & Ben Etheridge.
Hopefully we will be able to get some fantastic photos on the way of the gorgeous Snowdonia National Park as we walk up to the summit, I’m also hoping that I can do some live tweeting on the journey and will be using the hashtag #BMSnowdonCharityWalk so you can all keep up to date on how it’s going.
How Can You Sponsor/Donate To The Walk
Now that is really easy, at the moment myself and the walkers have sponsor forms for sponsoring us on the walk, but as a lot of you reading this, will not have a chance of meeting us in person, then I’ve set up a Facebook page, “Blazing Minds Snowdon Charity Walk” and on this page you will find a donate button, which will allow everyone to donate and sponsor us on our Snowdon Walk.
So please support us on the walk and help donate what you can, thanks everyone 😉
