JJ is running naked around london zoo

Yes you read that correctly .. JJ is running naked around london zoo.

WHY?

Well there is an event every year where a bunch of lovely people strip off after the zoo is closed and run to raise money for tigers.

The first ยฃ200 JJ raises will go to the ZSL tiger fund, any thing above that goes to Feel the Force Day.

You can find more about the tiger streak here: https://www.zsl.org/zsl-london-zoo/whats-on/streak-for-tigers

Sponsor JJ if you can …

Another plug for the sponsored run for Feel The Force Day – 6 of us are running 5 & 10k races at the #rundisneyfrance half marathon weekend at Disneyland Paris in September (21st – 26th) – we are doing this at our own expense to raise money for #FTFD. Last year 2 of us raised just over ยฃ1,000 which enabled the team to put on the biggest event for disabled guests so far.

This year, sponsorship hasn’t been so good and with just under 6 weeks to go until the run we are desperately trying raise awareness of the cause, the run and what Feel the Force Day is about. The Run 4 Feel the Force Day team has been trying to publicise it as much as we can to get some sponsors and every penny counts.

If you can share either

The just giving page: http://bit.ly/run4ftfd17
Or the #run4ftfd Facebook page: Run 4 Feel the Force Day
Or the #run4ftfd Website: http://run4ftfd.co.uk

That explains what Feel the Force Day is and why its such a great cause and why the 6 of us – including the amazing Jonathon who has cerebal palsy, Mandy who is Jonathan’s carer and bakes for FTFD, Sharon (me) who raises funds for Feel the Force Day along with fellow East Kent Costume Club friends Samantha, Ben and Sam’s son James are all running for this great cause (at our own expense) ..

Every single penny raised goes straight to Feel The Force Day allowing them to put on fantastic events.

1 in 4 people feel awkward talking to people with a disability. One of the reasons FEEL THE FORCE DAY exists is to make it possible for guests with disabilities to enjoy a sci-fi convention / comic con in the same manner as (and I hate to use this word) a normal guest. Not all disabilities are visible and some are very visible โ€“ so the amazing team at FEEL THE FORCE DAY put on an event that EVERYONE can feel comfortable at. FTFD events are accessible for wheelchairs and scooters of all shapes and sizes, aisles are wide to allow guests with walking aids to pass, tables are at a height that chairs and shorter guests can access. There are sensory rooms and touch tables for guests with visual or hearing problems, quiet rooms for guests who are anxious, autistic and have other issues with noise and crowds. Guests are encouraged to touch props and costumes โ€“ it is a festival of sound and vision, touch and taste โ€“ something for all the senses โ€“ even if that means very quiet and one on one experience. These events are UNIQUE and only possible through donations from rundraisers like this run and volunteers.

So if you can share, encourage someone to sponsor the team (even if its only ยฃ1 every single penny helps), and to raise awareness of this amazing cause – I and the rest of the #teamftfd runners would be SO greatful.

If you happen to be attending the Run Disney France event come and say hi there are lots of us running and a bunch of guys from Run DV would love to be cheared along.

Thank you for reading this very long post and thank you for your support
