Chilypep Project Co-ordinator Ellie Munday will be taking on the ‘Medal a Month’ challenge in 2020: completing 12 running events in 12 months and raising funds for Chilypep as she does it!
Starting on 12th January with the Tatton 10k, the challenge will see Ellie taking on three Half-Marathons, the Sheffield 20k Round Run, an Inflatable 5k in Manchester and a handful of 10k and 10 mile races across South Yorkshire and beyond.
“2019 was the year I fell back in love with running after setting myself the challenge of running both the Sheffield and Nottingham Half Marathons. For 2020, which happens to be the year I turn 30 (eek), I wanted to challenge myself further by signing up to a competitive race in every month of the year – and why not try to raise some money for an incredible charity whilst doing this?
I have worked at Chilypep for over 4 years, so I get to see first-hand the difference the organisation makes to the lives of some of the most vulnerable children and young people in Sheffield and Barnsley. As a small charity (with big ambitions!), all donations mean so much to us and the young people we work with.”
Ellie is funding all race entries, travel and accommodation costs, so 100% of all donations will go directly to Chilypep.
