Fast Paced Fundraising - December 2019

Published on Tuesday, 28 January 2020 16:15

Nicola Moriarty from Pitreavie AAC, with the help of work colleagues from ION, has raised almost £5000 this year for the Scottish mental health charity SAMH.  Nicola raised about half herself by undertaking her own triathlon, ‘The Wonky IONman’, running a half marathon, swimming 2 miles, and cycling 110km. Her generous colleagues joined her on what was a very wet cycle ride in torrential rain and organised even more events themselves to bring the total close to £5000.  The final event in Nicola’s fundraising efforts was the Christmas HoHoHo 5k handicap race last Sunday, with Pitreavie AAC Endurance section, and Jog Scotland Ready Steady Go Pitreavie taking to the streets of Dunfermline in Santa suits.  SAMH is a charity close to Nicola’s heart and as she says,’ SAMH does so much to improve mental health in Scotland, and I wanted to support the charity by promoting the physical and mental benefits of exercise.’

The two running groups have also made a difference to other charities.  By making donations to the monthly 5 mile handicap race and giving the proceeds from the Christmas night out, they’ve donated £126 to Sightsavers, a charity that helps prevent sight loss, and £240 to Bloodwise, a blood cancer charity.  Members who entered the HoHoHo Handicap also generously brought along donations for Dunfermline’s Foodbank.
