Quotes from Our Previous Marvellous Fundraisers
“Fundraising for Pumping Marvellous is great. The charity really helps to raise exposure of your fundraising efforts. The lead up to my first fundraising event was daunting but made all the easier because of the support given by Pumping Marvellous. From a personalised fundraising kit to use when promoting my event, to a Pumping Marvellous sports kit to wear on the day, the team at PM couldn’t have been more supportive.”
“I ran the Manchester Half-Marathon on 15th October 2017 and raised £235.25 for Pumping Marvellous. It was an exhilarating experience to spread awareness of heart failure and this charity whilst raising funds prior to the run. I received great support from the Pumping Marvellous team via email and social media, such as Facebook Pumping Marvellous Team Page.”
“My name is Laura and I am a staff nurse on a Cardiology ward. Throughout my 9 years experience of working on the ward, I have seen the impact that heart failure can have on a person’s life and those around them, not just physically but mentally. So being able to run for a charity which supports people with a diagnosis of heart failure is a privilege.”
“Working hand in hand with The Pumping Marvellous Foundation has been an absolute joy. They have matched my enthusiasm for fundraising every step of the way, going above and beyond what I’ve experienced before with other charitable organisations I’ve worked with. I was so proud to raise over £10,000 for this marvellous charity. I really can’t wait to get my teeth into another challenge fundraising for PM.”
“I ran the Edinburgh Meadows 5k in March 2017, with family and friends cheering me on along the route – including my then 3-year-old daughter who was definitely my biggest fan! I completed the course in under 30 minutes, and was so pleased to end up raising £480! Pumping Marvellous were a fantastic support in the lead up to the event. They sent me a running t-shirt and vest, and stayed in regular touch with messages of support and encouragement before and after the event. Plenty of people who saw me running in my PM vest, and through my Facebook updates wanted to know more about the charity and I was only too happy to tell them more. I was extremely proud to run for them.”
