Challenge Karen launched

Welcome to my blog

Over the next 30 days I have taken on a personal challenge. EEK. I will complete three events in 30 days to raise money for VOYPIC (Voice of Young People in Care). On 10 August I'll be swimming in Creggan Country Park as part of the Big LEGENDERRY SWIM; 23 August I'll be running as fast as I can as part of The Color Run in Belfast. Then finally on 7 September I'll swim in the Lagan, cycle around Belfast and dash to the finish line to complete the Titanic Triathlon.

My aim is to raise £500 to support the activities of VOYPIC's Young Reps. The Young Reps are volunteers from across Northern Ireland who represent other young people in care in their local area. They represent their views by getting involved in group work, telling adults what they think and by listening to what their friends have to say about care. They work to make care a better place!

So... I will be blogging and tweeting (very new to me) letting you know how I am getting on and how your donation can support children and young people in care in Northern Ireland.  Please make your donation here.

This weekend I will be trying to squeeze into a wetsuit and enter the unknown waters at Creggan Country Park. Fingers crossed the swimming lessons have paid off!
