Julia, our Business Administrator, has been putting her best foot forward this month by taking on Free Radio’s fundraising challenge throughout May of completing 5k a day in aid of Cash for Kids. This is the final day of the challenge so just time for you to give a donation to support!
The charity supports children and young people affected by poverty, abuse, neglect, life-limiting illness and those who have additional needs. It is based across 22 areas in the UK, where Bauer Radio operates its radio stations, providing grants to help community groups, other charitable organisations, schools and individual causes.
Julia, who always enjoys keeping active, has included box fitness training, walking, running, dancing, climbing up and down stairs as well as exercising on a row machine and a cross-trainer as part of her daily 5k.
She had fun and made herself conspicuous when out and about by having a theme for each day. This included a bad tie day; Tuesday twirl day; a Manic Monday wig day, Wet Weight Wednesday and taking a pet for a walk day.
Julia said she decided to take on the challenge in May because of hearing about it on Free Radio Hereford & Worcestershire and wanting to support children in her local area. She said, “No child should go without especially when it’s on your own doorstep. I can’t always afford to donate so I thought I would use my legs to get others to donate for this good cause.”
When she isn’t keeping fit Julia is a keen rugby fan who supports Worcester Warriors and she likes watching tennis as well as boxing.
Currently Julia, who lives in Wychbold near Bromsgrove, is fifth on the leader board of fundraisers in the West Midlands region having raised £646 since starting at the beginning of May. However, she would love to raise just a bit more!
