AMMF Slimathon- Losing weight and Gaining Pounds for AMMF!
The AMMF Slimathon was the brain child of Karen and Samantha from The Essex Events Company and has certainly caught on, proving to be great both for losing pounds for the participants and for gaining pounds for AMMF!
Some of the participants take up the challenge and raise sponsorship simply using AMMF’s sponsor forms. Others, like Nicola Allum, set up a Justgiving page linked to AMMF and encourage all their friends to sponsor them in that way, too.
Nicola has set herself a weight loss to be reached for the very good reason that she is getting married in June 2011, but there is also another important reason – her father has been diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and Nicola is determined to raise money to help with research into this disease.
Nicola is keeping a blog of her progress on her Justgiving page – have a look:
