An update on the blog is needed since I announced the start of the One-Ball Rally as so much has happened and so much needs to be done!!
The group of lads who are participating in the event are meeting this weekend to confirm the route and date of the event which will then be set in stone as there has been slight fluctuation over the months which is quite understandably considering the size of the challenge and I would rather have changes now than later down the road. (No pun intended)
We are raising money for specifically two charities which have both helped me during chemotherapy and these are Everyman www.icr.ac.uk/everyman/ and the Association for International Cancer Research www.aicr.org.uk/
These charities are really helping us in raising the profile of the OBR with help in the following ways;
Everyman: Are working on getting us celebrity involvement, which would be excellent!.
Assoc. of International Cancer Research: Through the PR officer of AICR, we have been attempting to get interest from both the Daily Mail and Daily Express concerning the One-Ball Rally. Also, Lorraine Kelly is patron of AICR so a possible slot on GM:TV has also been cited as a possibility.
Through our own work, we have interest from The Sun national newspaper so hopefully when it is closer to the start of the rally we will have a large, national presence so that as much money as possible is going to be raised, which is what its all about!!
We have a logo! It’s an absolute cracker and I’d like to thank Sam Gerrard from Shore Creative for all his hard work and continued help in the project. Check out his work and projects at www.shorecreative.co.uk
We also have recently gained the support of a top web-design firm Catch My Drift www.catchmydrift.com who are busy designing a brilliant website so I will post the link when the site is up & running. Visit their site to see examples of how the OBR site might look!
Any ideas/offers of support then please forward them on to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll keep you posted!!
