Talking when being Silent for #ComicRelief does mean Penalties have to be paid…

Simon is finding out that raising money for a great charity whilst being silent is not actually the easiest thing in the World!

He is now in to the fourth hour of the 12 hour challenge and the penalty charge of star jumps for speaking is starting to hurt a little.

In true FitKid spirit, the penalty for speaking is exercise. So, he gets to raise money while keeping quiet and exercising.

Every time he says something he has to do 10 additional star jump on top of the 10 he had to do the first time he spoke!

He is now up to 50 star jumps the next time he speaks.

That could become hard work by 7pm when he can stop and enjoy the show. We may have to impose financial penalties to make his life easier.


Lots going on for Comic Relief Tomorrow – Sponsor the Team and their Activities

Taking up the Charity mantel again after Children in Need

Well after Children in Need last year, we thought we had better get involved for proper in this year’s Comic Relief effort.

Having participated in Sport Relief and Children in Need, this is the next natural fit for us as we all need a laugh sometimes.

Members of the FitKid team will be participating in numerous activities for Comic Relief from bouncing around on spacehoppers all day to keeping quiet!

The latter of which involves Simon going up against the Chris Moyles Radio Show by trying to keep quiet for Comic Relief.

He says, “There comes a time when not talking can be a good thing too you know, especially if it helps some less well off individuals and families across the World.”

Furthermore he makes the point, “If you cannot be bothered to donate money to me that is fine, but do me a favour and donate to Chris. He is doing pretty well after all and that is only ÂŁ1. I will do this for 12 hours. ÂŁ1 an hour would be nice!”

Personal congratulations go to all our Team who are participating tomorrow and we will post updates on the Blog in due course.

Finally, and most importantly if you wish to donate to our team and the activities they are undertaking, please go to  http://my.rednoseday.com/FitKidLtd

Raising Money for Charity is Fun! Feels so good….!

Well we have now managed to get all the money in from all our sponsors for Sport Relief and I am pleased to say we raised enough money to purchase 46 Malaria nets to protect children in Africa! Undertaking such a run as we did for Sports Relief in London with our 3 and 6 year old daughters made this process extra special. Not only do they learn the joys of running and having fun whilst doing it but they also learn more about the joys of charity and the importance of helping others who are not as lucky as they are. We highly recommend all families participating in these activities as they are fantastic fun for all.

Now joining Sportacus in Sport Relief mile

What a fantastic mother’s day I have had today, spending time with my 2 daughters and husband and members of my family.  We decided to opt for a different kind of mother’s day and packed up a picnic and headed to the local park for a run around in the wooded area, playing on a variety of play structures and taking a trip on the minature steam train.

While out and about we decided we were going to enter the Sport Relief London mile and join in with Sportacus’ activities.

We are all very excited to be able to be active together as a family at the same time as raising funds for charity.

Are you participating in sports relief ? If so please do let me know about your activities.

Rather than ringing in to donate to Sports Relief, please donate by sponsoring me and my family –
