Amazing Fantastic Achievement – Cheryl’s Story

This is Cheryl Williams’ Story Hey everyone! As some of you all know I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer in Sept 2019 and I finished my treatment in Jan 2021. It was very lucky that they caught the disease in its early stages and I went on to have the best possible treatment available to me which resulted in me getting the news in Jan that there was no evidence of disease. Having had 15 months of intense treatment has taken its toll on me but I wanted to do something to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. I would love to be able to raise as much as I can for a charity that supported me through what has been the hardest…

Watch out, Watch Out, there’s a wild Mad March Hare About!

Sightings of a wild Mad March Hare reported in Swindon Reports are coming in from Swindon of multiple sightings of a wild, human sized Mad March Hare. Although large it is said to be very friendly and happy to pose for selfies. Here we find the wild Mad March Hare in it’s natural environment. Have you guessed what the Mad March Hare is trying to tell us? We believe it’s telling us to get out and about, get some exercise and at the same time raise some money for Breast Cancer Now.

First Registration for 2021

The first registration has arrived at Mad March Hare HQ. Yes, Mad March Hare 2021 is underway with registrations now coming in from across the world. First to register was Jane Rodens from Ipswich. Originally from Swindon Jane has completed our event several times, often timing her trips back to see family so she can take part. The route it takes through Swindon is one of my favourites, I may not be able to run the same hills and views in Suffolk but I will give it a go. As soon as I saw the link on a friends’ Facebook page I thought it would be a good opportunity to support the charity. Jane Robens We’re delighted to have you on board Jane. Lots more…

COVID didn’t stop the 13th Mad March Hare

Thirteen wasn’t an unlucky number for the Mad March Hare Event as the team were determined to do all they could to continue their fundraising quest! The annual event based at Lydiard Academy welcomes over 500 participants walking, jogging or running a 5k or 10k route around West Swindon and raises money for Breast Cancer Now.  Our fundraising up to 2019 stood at over £113,000. However, this year in response to the Government guidance around COVID 19 and after taking advice from organisers of other large events, the Team took the sad decision early in March to cancel the event scheduled for Sunday 22nd March. We were very disappointed to have to take this action but we considered it was appropriate under the circumstances. Registration for the event closed…

The Virtual Event Continued On… In response to the guidance around COVID 19, early in March the Mad March Team took the sad decision to cancel the event scheduled for Sunday 22nd March 2020.  However, the virtual event had been running for the past few years and had proved really popular, so we thought it would be a good idea to offer people the opportunity to do this instead (following social distance advice of course). Images of happy families completing their runs began to fill our Facebook page and we busily started to deliver the medals which had been so deservedly earned. Here are just a few of the many pictures we received.
