May was an exciting month for Community Fundraising events, and the excitement will continue during June and July!
Last weekend was filled with fantastic Community Fundraising events, and OCD Action would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who was involved!
Tracey completed the Hackney Half Marathon and raised a fantastic amount of money for three charities supporting those affected by OCD and BDD! Well done! Here's a picture of Tracey with a well deserved medal!
There are lots of exciting Community Fundraising events taking place at the moment, and many people are very kindly raising money for OCD Action.
Coming up this weekend, Christian Bower and Tracey Taylor will both be taking on the challenge of running the Hackney Half Marathon.
Tracey is running to raise money for 3 fantastic charities, and we are very grateful that she has chosen OCD Action as one of them. You can donate to support Tracey by visiting her Virgin Money Giving page.
Following Jack Pridmore’s mammoth journey around England in February, Elizabeth Bailey kept OCD Action’s fundraising (and running!) momentum going in March by completing the Colchester half-marathon. All told, Elizabeth’s fantastic fundraising efforts raised over £550 to help people affected by OCD and we therefore send many congratulations and our sincere thanks to Elizabeth.
