Today we are pleased to announce the winners of our Fundraiser of the Year award. Yes, winners. This year we have two of our amazing supporters whom we are rewarding and we would like to share with you what they have been doing during the year.

pseudomyxoma-survivor-fundraiser-of-the-year-2013-1In March, Michelle took part in the Centurion Thames 100 mile Challenge to raise money for Pseudomyxoma Survivor and raise awareness of PMP. The conditions on the day were horrendous and just completing the path was little short of amazing. During the week prior to the event, it was in threat of being cancelled due to the extreme weather conditions and flooding on the Thames Path. The event did go ahead but the route had to be changed… now extended to 103 miles.

The day started with snow and it took Michelle 24 hours 48 minutes to complete – including taking a wrong turn along the way and adding some extra miles.

As if this wasn’t enough, Julie also established and co-ordinated the Pseudomyxoma Survivor Marathon Challenge 2013 where she encouraged us to run, walk or crawl a marathon in whatever time was a personal challenge. Julie was amazing throughout, enthusing us and the children at the school where she teaches and producing amazing progress charts for participants throughout the world.

Please join with us in congratulating both Michelle and Julie and all our other amazing fundraisers for their fantastic efforts in raising awareness of PMP and helping us raise funds to continue with our charitable aims.

If you have been inspired by Michelle and Julie, please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
