Another Hill and Sometimes a Mountain

As reported in previous news, June was the first of two mountainous months of fundraising for OCD Action.

Saturday June 20th saw Tim Wright’s superb effort in the South Downs Marathon, in which he finished in 99th place from a field of over 500 runners. Tim completed the marathon in 4 hours and 9 minutes – a fantastic achievement – and succeeded in generating approaching £600 in funds to help people affected by OCD – another fantastic achievement! So we warmly congratulate Tim and thank him for all his hard work on this. Please also note that Tim’s fundraising page is still open if you wish to show him your support and make a donation.

June also saw another of our community fundraisers complete a mountainous challenge. Our Fundraiser set out to climb Mont Blanc to raise money for people affected by OCD, and she did more than just that - she more than doubled her initial target of raising £1000, by raising a huge £2,359 to help people affected by OCD, so again we would like to say big congratulations, and thank you for all the hard work that went in to this fundraising challenge. You can still donate to support this endeavour by visiting JustGiving

But June was not the end of huge peaks being reached by OCD Action Fundraisers.  1st July saw Alex and James begin their massive 3 Peaks Duathlon, in which they aim to complete the 3 peaks challenge... but minus the car! So instead of driving between (then walking up) the highest peaks in Wales (Snowdon, 1085m), England (Scafell Pike, 978m) and Scotland (Ben Nevis, 1344m), they’re cycling between them. And they’re also running up and down them! Watch out for further news on Alex’s and James’s fantastic campaign and in the meantime, please visit their fundraising page to show your support!
