In April 2015-16 TOAD® Diaries teamed up with ‘Team Breathe’, the men and women running in aid of the British Lung Foundation in Sunday’s Royal Parks Foundation Half-Marathon in London. They were helped to reach their peak of physical fitness with the use of our personalised fitness training diaries, handmade in the UK and donated to BFL directly.
We created personalised Running Diaries for Team Breathe to support the British Lung Foundation’s vital work on behalf of people affected by lung disease complete with for each selfless fundraiser a keepsake of their efforts with their name and the race details on.
“We wanted to find some way to support the great work of the British Lung Foundation and when we developed our new range of personalised fitness and training diaries we knew we had found it. TOAD®’s Running Diaries are ideal for people embarking on training schedules in the lead up to charity runs because they can be created to start and finish at any month of the year, so there are no wasted pages. Not only this, they are formatted with training schedule sections, diet and nutrition advice, core exercises and common problems and injuries too. Being able to personalise them for each runner with a different cover and their name and the race details on, we hope, was an added bonus as a memento of the event.”
- Tim Grinsdale, owner and director of TOAD® Diaries
Katie Lyall, community and events fundraising manager at The British Lung Foundation, said: “The personalised training diaries have been a great way to help our runners prepare for their challenge. We feel privileged to be supported by TOAD® Diaries, and are grateful that our amazing runners are being supported by them in this way. Team Breathe runners will also have a special keepsake from the occasion. In the UK 1 in 5 people are affected by lung disease, and we want to thank anyone who helps us in the fight for all those affected.”
The personalised TOAD® Running Diaries were sent out to runners when they signed up to run with Team Breathe along with their running shirts and race numbers.
