On Wednesday 19th March 2014 I signed up to take part in the Race for Life to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research UK after my Nan was diagnosed with breast cancer during December 2013. I also have family members that have suffered with different kinds of cancer, some of which are sadly no longer with us. ‘Miss BC’s Girls’ is the race group made up by myself, Tracey Marie Sumner-Wells, Sammy Sumner, Kylie Williams and Lucy Preston.
‘Miss BC’s Girls’ are looking for more ladies from the Black Country to come run, jog or even walk alongside us in the race for life on Sunday 18th May 2014, 11:00am at Walsall Arboretum. If there are any lovely ladies inside or outside of the Black Country that are interested in joining the group please find me, Shelley-Marie Sumner, on Facebook, Twitter, or contact Miss England Pageant for my personal phone number and email and I shall send you all the information you will need. More the merrier, we shall have alot of fun doing good for such a well deserved charity...
Every penny counts and your support will be very much appreciated.
For the past 3 weeks or so I have been in touch with a few people that organise events around the Black Country one of which is Garry Sawers. During the month of July I will be getting involved in many ways to celebrate Black Country Day, 14th July, which has now turned into the ‘Black Country Festival’ using the whole of July to celebrate by putting on different events in different towns. For more information on the festival and events visit: www.blackcountryfestival.co.uk
On Monday 31st March 2014 myself and Garry Sawers, also known as Black Country Gaz, met up at the Walsall Town Hall and had a press shoot for the Walsall Advertiser to promote the Black Country Festival and also promote the black country flag which is now available to purchase online. They even do number stickers for your wheelie bins!
The article will hopefully be in the Walsall Advertiser within the next few days.
Myself, my boyfriend Dean and his cousin (Freya’s Dad, Richard) are looking into doing the ‘Tough Mudder’ challenge or something similar to raise the money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course challenges designed to test your all-around strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. With the most innovative obstacles and over one million participants globally to date, Tough Mudder is the premier obstacle course series in the world.
