Sarah's ten challenge bonanza for Young Epilepsy
When someone wants to fundraise for a cause, it is often difficult to find the ‘right’ occasion and type of event. For Sarah Rickett from Derbyshire, this was no problem.
Sarah, and a group of her friends, have done an amazing job by raising more than £5,000 for Young Epilepsy, taking part in ten events during 2017. The events, listed below, were completed in honour of her dear friend, Vicki Poxon, who passed away as a result of epilepsy on 30 October 2007 – exactly ten years ago.
Sarah Rickett says:
[Vicki was] a daughter, sister, granddaughter, relative and friend gone too soon. She lived life to the max and was always happy and smiling; a great person to be around.
Therefore with this year marking the 10th year anniversary of her death we have decided to celebrate her life by completing ten challenges/events in her memory.
Sarah's ten challenges were:
- Pub quiz
- Cake sale
- 200km bike ride
- Inflatable 5km run
- Climb up Kinder Scout Mountain
- Race Night
- Car wash
- Car boot
- Half marathon
- Charity football game. After the game, balloons were let off in honour of Vicki.
