Ruth Seymour is walking 500 miles over the course of a year to support research into multiple sclerosis.
|Cause fundraised for||Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic|
|Method of fundraising||Walk 500 miles with my walker-trolley (Angus)|
Why did you decide to fundraise for your chosen cause?
Because an appointment at the clinic inspired me.
The Clinic was founded by the generosity and altruism of an individual and I think it is fitting that people’s generosity and altruism help to maintain it.
How did you raise money?
By stopping to chat to people walking their dogs, then (with the owner’s permission) taking a photo of their dog and putting daily updates, progress reports and dog photos on my Just Giving page (my doggy blog). Then I had cards printed with my JustGiving details, and when dog-walkers are interested by or receptive to what I’m doing, I give them my card and let them know that I will upload the photo of their dog onto my JustGiving page before the end of the day.
Do something that you enjoy; your enthusiasm should then become infectious (viral)!!
