Rise to the Challenge: Sport Relief Weekend

Hot off the press ... or rather, the email alert!

It all kicks off on Friday 19th March with a day of fundraising fun at home, at work and at school, before a night of special Sport Relief telly on BBC One, packed full of celebrity performances and moving documentary films.

Then, of course, there's The Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 21st March, where hundreds of thousands of people will take to the streets to raise money and change lives. You'll be able to see all the action on The Sport Relief Mile Show on BBC One later that day.
The best bit is, all the cash you raise will be spent by Comic Relief to help people living unimaginably tough lives, both in the UK and across the world.

And, after last week's truly devastating earthquake that hit Haiti last week, which shocked and saddened us all, we'll ensure that some of the Sport Relief cash you raise will help to rebuild the lives of those most affected.

Whether it's to support poor and disadvantaged people at home, or further afield, with loads of ways for you to get involved in Sport Relief 2010, we hope you'll do just that.

Registration is open for the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile as we gear up for a weekend of fun and games on aorund 19-21 March. Find your local mile here.

Visit the Sport Relief website and follow them on Twitter to keep up with all the action.

Oh, all those fit, joggy type people running around in shorts and tshirts - puts me to shame!
