Admins/mods, apologies if this is inappropriate or in the wrong place!

As part of a personal mission to make a difference both to myself and others next year, and hopefully to also provide a boost to our local healthcare services, I am committing myself to running 10k each time Derby County fail to win a game (i.e. draw or lose) during 2021. If current form is anything to go by, I'll be stick thin by March!

I have started a GoFundMe page to hopefully do a bit of good while also having a bit of fun following our beloved Rams next year. I struggled to settle on a particular charity to support but have gone with the Derby and Burton Hospital Charity in light of the fantastic work they have done in tough circumstances in 2020. If you would wish to donate and provide me some much-needed motivation I'd appreciate literally anything!

My other thought was for the Derby City Mission who I know we had done some fundraising for on this forum earlier in the year, please also consider helping their cause if you would prefer;

Long and the short of it is...

We're going to make it a good year in 2021. Quote me, screenshot me, @ me.

Great effort mate. You'll be in Plymouth by March.

I'd stop now before it gets too expensive 😂

There's a saying in our family that goes back 9 generations...

"A real man looks good in pink, and never breaks a promise"!

 

EDIT:

Sorry... not generations... minutes!  😲

I'll do the easy bit... for every 10k you run, I'll put a fiver to one side.  At the end of the season... IF you are still alive... I'll split it 50/50 to each of your chosen charities....

 

You've gone quiet, @Sean.  Hope you're ok, mate.  🐏

 

Just a bump and an update...

Since the last post (following Watford away)...

 

Huddersfield Home - WIN
Fo*est Home-Draw
Cardiff Away - Lose

=2 x 10k runs to report.

I'll update my IOU when I see evidence that @Sean is still alive, and has done the last two runs.

@Mucker1884

I am still alive don't worry, I've just had an incredibly hectic week, thank you for the interest!

I have done the two runs for Forest and Cardiff but forgot to post them, will put all the details here shortly.

I was also planning to do my 10k for yesterday's game today but I'm feeling a little under the weather at the moment so will probably delay this until tomorrow evening!

Glad to hear all is ok, mate.  🍻

 

Looks like I forgot to add the Watford game to my i.o.u's, so now done.  I'll i.o.u in advance for the Coventry run, as I'm generous like that!  🤣

 

Updated i.o.u:

£20 + Watford, For*st, Cardiff, Coventry...

Roll on December!  😲

I still owe a 10k for Millwall today but I'm not a machine, so that will have to wait until Monday. Good job we don't have Brentford on Tuesday or anything...

Nearly at 1/5th of the target which is massive, thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. Any shares and donations very much appreciated!

15 x 10km now done this year (already)... only 4 more games to go this season at least 😒

It has been a mammoth undertaking so really appreciate any donations you can offer! Up to £225 with some offline donations I received so thank you to everyone who has donated so far... maybe we can get to £500 before next season? 🤞
