Run for Christchurch

Bloggers are a generous and inventive lot, and a group of Kiwi bloggers have come up with a way we can show our solidarity for Christchurch and help the folks there rebuild their city and get their lives back on track:

This is a world-wide fun run that anyone can join in. It's not an organised event that you show up to, instead you simply:

- Make a donation to the Red Cross Christchurch earthquake appeal via the Run for Christchurch webpage
- Tell the world that you're joining in, using your blog, Twitter, Facebook (or if you don't use any of those, just email the organisers at
- On the 12th or 13th March, don red and black clothing and go for your run - anywhere you like. The way Melbourne's weather has been lately, mine may be on a treadmill at the gym.

All the details are here. Please follow these guys on Twitter, "like" their page on Facebook, and be sure to retweet, share and generally spread the word.

And if you can't manage to run 5k? Hey, do run/walk intervals, or whatever you can manage. There are no prizes for the fastest in this event.

Let's see how many people we can get to join in!

You're welcome, girls! Kiwis and Aussies are practically countrymen.
