Monthly Vital Statistics - June



 Here, with the most important figure first, are the stats for JUNE :


CHARITY FUND TOTAL AT 30th June  -  £355.00

TRAINING MILES COMPLETED IN MAY  -  37.2 miles

TOTAL MILES TRAINING TO DATE  -  277.2 miles

NUMBER OF VIEWS OF THIS BLOG  - 5,032

NUMBER OF FACEBOOK 'LIKES' -  382


The most improved figure through June has again been the amount of views of this blog. Up by an amazing 988 views! Wow!

Facebook 'likes' continue to rise. Up by another 44 during June and rising slowly all the time, and that's without much focus on trying to increase the figure. Thanks for keeping sharing the links folks. Still aiming to hit  '500' before I actually do the full 2 day journey in August, or September if I have to postpone for better weather.

Poor weather is among other factors that has hindered my amount of training miles this month. Just 37.2 miles this month. That's 60.8 miles less than in May. I NEED to improve on that figure during July, but at least I have one full week booked off work. I just have to hope for better weather in that week and throughout the month to build up to half distance, 50 miles before I undertake the full journey.

Thanks to all who have donated to the charity fund or contibuted support to The Long Push so far. On the face of it the charity fund only grew by £4 last month, but...this is not the full story. There has been some MASSIVELY good news on the donations/sponsorship front which has been generated offline from the www.justgiving.com/TheLongPush page. The biggest boost to the fund is something I'm still going to have to keep to myself for now, because it needs a full and proper announcement and I'm going to make sure that that's what it gets, but aside from that here are some other great bits of fundraising news:

  • I have £26.60 that's been handed to me to add on to the Just Giving page total.
  • Pledges at my workplace are up to over £60 and continuing to grow.
  • The tombola at the Diamond Jubille Garden Fete at Parkside Court in Southport generated a whopping £170 towards The Long Push 2012.   Huge thanks to Pat, Brian, and Gill for organising that, and of course to everyone who contributed in any way. I'll post a seperate full blog about that event with more detailed thanks over the coming days.
  • The Head Teacher, staff and children at Birkdale Primary School are going to be holding a 'cake sale' in support of The Long Push 2012. Special thanks to Teaching Assistant Mrs. Hayward for her support in helping this happen. I'll be going in to the school this week to see how they are getting on.
  • And of course, this place is reserved for the other special announcement.
So, all in all June has been hugely positive, with much going on behind the scenes (and some without my knowledge!) to boost the charity fund. I really can't thank all the people involved in helping achieve this enough. It is truly heartwarming and quite humbling, to be honest. Please continue to share Facebook and blog links with anyone you can and help raise autism awareness via The Long Push 2012. There will still be ideas going on the blog of ways to make donating easy and yet easy on the pocket too.

And finally of course, thanks as ever, to THE LONG PUSH 2012 sponsors, www.bigwoodys.co.uk  uk.dcshoes-store.com  www.sporting-sails.com  www.orangatangwheels.com  www.jandrsports.co.uk  and to all who have donated and supported me in any way so far.

Watch out for me pushing along a road near you during July!

Chris
