INTRODUCTION

Why the Teenage Cancer Trust?

Around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word "cancer". The Teenage Cancer Trust is the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
Hello and welcome to 100 Fairies and thank you for taking the time to have a look at our pages.

Now you may be wondering why ď100Ē and ďfairiesĒ (and if that wasnít enough, ďpinkĒ as well!). Well to be honest we knew that in order to raise significant sums of money we needed to capture the nationís imagination.

The Teenage Cancer Trust creates world-class cancer services for young people in the UK, providing life-changing care and support so young people donít have to face cancer alone. We want to raise £10,000 for the organisation as we felt this was an amount that would make a significant difference, but to raise that all by ourselves seemed an awesome task.

So, we thought we would harness the power of the people, get everyone involved and have some fun at the same time with what we hope will be a fantastic way to make at least a small difference to our world.

We NEED 100 people who are willing to run, skip, jog or even walk 10k (thatís just 6.25 miles for you oldies) and it would be fabulous if you could come dressed as a pink fairy.

We will all be entering the Royal Berkshire 10k on May 20th 2018 (it would seem only right and proper to enter a royal race in our fair county and the date will give you plenty of time to train). You will need to follow the link on the links page and pay for your own entry and of course beg, borrow or buy your own pink fairy outfit.

One hundred pink fairies will be a great spectacle and will help raise the profile of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Each fairy will need to raise at least £100 so that we can meet our target of £10,000 - it sounds right to have 100 pink fairies running 10k in order to raise £10k and make a difference. We can see the newspaper headlines already!

To be a fairy you can be any age between 15 and 100+ and of any running ability as itís the taking part and raising money that counts.

We have included some training plans if you want to be a 'proper runner' but equally if you want to walk round with no training at all then thatís just fine.

If you need any more information on our 100 Fairies project, just mail Nick on nrobey@btopenworld.com but whatever you do don't forget to let us know when you've signed up for the race so we can put your name on the Runners List!
So letís recap - you need to:
  • Enter the Royal Berkshire 10k on May 20th 2018 and pay for your entry
  • Make, hire or buy a fairy outfit
  • Train to run a 10k or just decide to walk if you want to
  • Raise £100 and do your bit.
And as part of the challenge Nick was kindly offered the chance of a Charity place by the Teenage Cancer Trust to run the London Marathon, which will enable even more money to be raised on behalf of the charity. In order to honour this place, the Teenage Cancer Trust need the 100 Fairies to raise £2000 between them but we plan on raising much, much more than this, in fact at least £10,000!

Pink Fairies are more than welcome to donate their sponsorship through this 100 Fairies site or set up their own JustGiving or Virgin MoneyGiving pages. All monies raised, however it is donated, will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Nick also has his own London Marathon JustGiving page where he aims to raise an additional £2000.

Finally, there is no limit to fundraising - the more you raise the more research the charity can undertake so please raise lots!

Simples!
