    Sir Roger Bannister

    Sorry to hear of the passing of our patron Sir Roger Bannister. An inspiration for us to go that extra mile...

    Indeed Fru. In fact he has given me an idea - wondering if I could do a 4 minute mile in my powered wheelchair? Do you think that might be cheating a bit?

    Regards

    Chas

    It could be a great fundraiser.
    The One Mile Challenge in honour of Roger Bannister.
    Challenge is to complete 1 mile in whatever way or time possible.
    Like the Ice Bucket one could challenge someone to do the mile.

    Do you guys think it has legs? (excuse the pun).

    What a great idea! Either do the mile in memory or see how far we can get in four minutes. I like that.
    It makes me smile

    Fru:

    I spend my time trying to come up with an idea to match the Ice Bucket Challenge.
    Not that anything could match that.
    The other idea I have is HOLD YOUR BREATH FOR AN MND CURE
    The idea is to hold your breath for a minute (as opposed to a minute silence).
    Then time it on mobile phone and take a picture.
    Not as dramatic as the Ice Bucket.

    Does the idea leave people on the forum breathless with excitement???
