Last week, the club announced our first game day sponsor would be Punch Drunk Comedy Club and we highlighted the good work both their team and the community have done in raising money for charities – such as the #CaringforKian campaign.
Inspired by this, Lightnings Head Coach Mal Ditcham has challenged the team to raise as much money as possible in the next 120 days, all aimed at supporting local charities.
Individual and group events over the course of our season will see our members push themselves in a variety of different challenges including running a 10k race in full kit, completing a 5k obstacle course, blood drives and much, much more.
At the end of 120 days the funds raised will be donated to the charities supported by our friends at Punch Drunk Comedy Club- including Bradley’s Smile Trust, Princess Ellie’s Trust, Nathan’s Needs and John Joseph’s Journey.
To help achieve this goal, the club has launched a JustGiving Crowdfunding page where contributors and sponsors can donate to help us complete this challenge.
So keep following the developments on our social media pages and dig deep!
Update (11/4/16) – We are pleased to announce that we will now also be supporting Melanie’s Mission in our #120days challenge.
