Kim Allan's Fundraising Page

 
PAGE CREATOR: Kim Allan
EVENT: 500km with 0hrs Sleep
EVENT DATE: 22/11/2012

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

A brief outline as to what I am doing. On November the 22nd (Thursday at 9.00am) I will be running, walking, shuffling and quite possibly crawling around the Auckland Domain. I will be running/walking around the Sri Chinmoy Peace mile loop 332x(500km)without sleep until I pass American Ultra runner Pam Reed's distance of 301 miles(486km).
The Sri Chinmoy Peace Mile loop actual measurement using the IAAF/ AIMS approved calibrated bicycle method is 1,506.712 metres.
Thus 332 laps would amount to [332 X 1.506712} = 500.228 kms

This should take me anywhere between 80 -90hrs.I am out to beat the distance, not the time but obviously the quicker I can complete this, the sooner I get to SLEEP!
I envisage finishing some time on Sunday the 25th.
This will be a huge challenge, not only physically but mentally and there are days I simply can't get my head around being awake for that length of time. But in the words of Nelson Mandela "It always seems impossible until it is done.

Here is the link to my facebook page if you would like to kept up todate with whatis happening. https://www.facebook.com/bluelight500km0hrsleep

I am raising funds and awareness for The CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Trust.
In New Zealand alone, we have one new Spinal Cord Injury every five days resulting in long lasting impairment. Whilst there are a number of organisations providing valuable rehabilitative support to those with SCI; The CatWalk Trust aims to challenge the current boundaries of research, enabling those suffering from a SCI to walk again
After exploring several options, the group agreed that supporting researchers in the very realistic bid for a cure for Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) would be CatWalk’s aim. And so, The CatWalk Trust is dedicated to raising funds to support the body of scientific opinion which says a cure for Spinal Cord Injury will be found.
