Charity Runs/Walks/Races etc

Ever since I lost my dad I have been considering doing a charity run for Cancer. I was looking into one, race for life I think it was, though its only for women and Mick wanted to do it with me (well Im forcing him to lol) and so am looking other places. I would love to do the London marathon one day though as I drive everywhere instead of walking I need a lot more excersise and training for that.

There are a few midnight runs near me which I think I might participate in at some point though

Do you know of any? Have you ever particpated in any? Are you considering it?

This is going to be my second year participating in Komen Madison Race For The Cure with my mom and a bunch of her friends and their kids. The leader of our group is a breast cancer survivor, and it's was really fun last year, so I'm glad we're doing it again!

I'm actually doing a 'Fun Run' in school on the 23rd. I'm tying myself to one of my friends at the waist.

xD

I'm not sure what charity we're raising for though, I THINK its Cancer Research.

Our school has a yearly Charity Run, where we are sponsored by parents or something like that - only this year some stupid person of the student council decided that we (as in grades 11, 12 and 13) don't need to be given the forms to make people sponsor us.
His reason was that upper stage isn't interested and isn't going to participate in the Charity Run anyway. Well, besides the fact that it isn't a voluntary event - how stupid is that? I would fill out the forms if I had be given some, but if they don't care I won't run around searching for them...idiocy.

I like the idea of participating in something like this, but I doubt I would do it. Running is not something I enjoy...

I'd maybe do a charity walk, but I'd rather do some other form of fundraising!

I admire those who do these things though, for example there was a blind man from Birmingham in the news this week who ran seven marathons on seven continents in seven days, and raised lots of money for his charity.

I have done a few charity runs but nothing on the extent of the London marathon and I ended up walking most of the way :D

I've done a walk called Light the Night here where everybody gets a balloon with a light in it (different colors for survivors, those walking in memory of someone, or those just walking to support) and it's a lot of fun because lots of people do it and the balloons look really pretty when they're all lit up.
