Community Fundraising update!

There are lots of exciting Community Fundraising events taking place at the moment, and many people are very kindly raising money for OCD Action.

Coming up this weekend, Christian Bower and Tracey Taylor will both be taking on the challenge of running the Hackney Half Marathon.

Tracey is running to raise money for 3 fantastic charities, and we are very grateful that she has chosen OCD Action as one of them. You can donate to support Tracey by visiting her Virgin Money Giving page.

Christian will also be running the Hackney Half Marathon, and has been training hard in preparation for Sunday. Christian has raised nearly £150 so far - please show your support by visiting his fundraising page.

We would also like to say a huge well done and thank you, to Jay Bartlett-Massingham and Janine Wood, for taking part in fundraising events last weekend and for raising a huge amount of money for OCD Action.

Janine and her friends took part in the Black Light Run, and they have raised an grand total of £926.98 to help support people affected by OCD! There's still time to make a donation to Janine - you can do so by visiting her JustGiving page

Also in action last weekend, was 9 year old Jay, who cycled an unbelievable 107.9 miles over 2 days, through wind and rain! At just turned 9, Jay was the youngest competitor at Pedal Norfolk, and he received fantastic encouragement from fellow riders and even received congratulations from Emma Pooley, the Olympic and Commonwealth Games cycling legend! Jay has raised almost £600 for people affected by OCD - what an incredible achievement!

Here's a picture of Jay in action:

Good luck to Christian and Tracey for Sunday, and a big thank you to Jay, Janine and Janine's friends - Justine, Kalie, and Jemma, for all of their hard work and support. The money they have raised will really make a difference to people affected by OCD. If you would like to follow in their footsteps, why not take part in a fundraising challenge of your own?
