Apparently I like to make things difficult for myself. I think it’s just a case of enjoying a challenge, but either way, after racking my brains for a few days, I decided that one single challenge wasn’t enough, and instead the best way to raise money for Maggies Centre Fife is to have 26 different fundraisers; a different event, challenge or activity for every letter of the alphabet. The A-Z for Maggie’s was born and shared with the family, who although said I may be taking on too much, loved the idea and will be involved every step of the way.
The A- Z for Maggie’s isn’t just about raising as much as we can for Maggie’s Fife, albeit that is the most important aim. It is about my family and I doing positive things together, bringing others together, making memories and raising awareness of Maggie’s and the work they do to support those with cancer.
This will be a work in progress and as we work through them, I’ll update and hopefully get some of you involved. Here’s the list so far; some confirmed (in bold), some are simply ideas, and the blank spaces; yeah, we need ideas!
