Welcome to the first Team12 Newsletter, marking the official beginning of the ‘12in12’, and our yearlong commitment to HOPEHIV.
We are a group of 25 sporting enthusiasts who aim to bring HOPE through ACTION, each performing 12 challenges in 12 months throughout 2012. Team members have pledged to train in the snow, run in the rain, swim in dirty bogs, cycle across mountains and deserts and in so doing inspire our supporters and onlookers to donate to an amazing cause, as we push our personal boundaries (and get rather muddy).
I continue to be humbled by the passion and commitment each member has for our joint mission: to raise £250,000 for HOPEHIV, as well as by the generosity of so many of our supporters before the year has even begun. We are so grateful to those who will be supporting us every month via a £12/month direct debit, and if this is something that appeals please do download the form on the homepage. We are also still recruiting Cupcake Ambassadors and we would love to invite you, or any keen bakers you know, to join us in our monthly bake sales.
Through this Newsletter we look forward to sharing with you the tears, traumas, highs, lows and hilarity that is the 12in12, and most importantly to publicise what’s coming up so you can pop it in your diaries and start limbering up!
