Happy Friday 05/12/14
Belated thanks to everyone who made our 9th Gala Dinner a roaring success!!!!!!
Was great to hear from our wonderful charities and to see our Gold Medal winning Paralympians-huge congrats to Kelly and Charlotte who have been nominated for Sports Personality of the year!!!!
Big Kev did a brilliant job as our Auctioneer and together with raffle we raised just over £30k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brilliant night and so many hugely generous people-massive thanks to you all.
We are wrapping this year up now and want to pay out our charities soon so can I ask for any outstanding monies to come in asap-many thanks.
Already the wheels are turning for 2015 and Timbo has been busy recruiting and writes:
The o2e - obese2extraordinary Challenge.
The challenge is to lose a ton of weight and to follow the o2e ethos of being healthier, fitter, and happier.
And probably to save ourselves from a premature end!!!
So Team Obese2 Extraordinary is officially formed.
It’s open to anybody and everybody willing to put in the effort and support each other to achieve this “mammoth” (tehehehe) task.
To qualify, all team members MUST agree to lose at least 28lbs between now and the Big Kev o2e Ride in September 2015.
Plus, all team members must take part in an event for o2e in 2015. Any event, preferably the Big Kev bike ride – but ANY event,( whereby you take part and raise sponsorship and awareness for o2e), qualifies.
As it’s an o2e event it will be a sponsored event. All team members must try and raise as much sponsorship as possible.
We will aggregate all weight loss. It’s a massive team effort. We are all, ONE. We will set up a group justgiving page as well.
It seems to me that the best way to do this is to get sponsors by the lbs lost in total by the team. Be it a 1p per lbs or £100 per lbs or whatever. Bear in mind, it is a total lost weight value – target so far – incredibly - 379lbs!!!
And the team may well grow bigger (in number - not in size and shape) – and therefore, so will the declared weight loss. So all sponsors should be made aware and CAP their sponsorship accordingly.
The Team and declared weigh in and target weight loss. (so far).
|Start Lbs||Target Lbs||Target Loss|
|Big Kevin Tuohy||244||202||42|
|Total Loss Pledged||379
There is a FACEBOOK group where we will post our progress, and where everyone can encourage, ridicule and generally beat us up to get the job done.
Its - obese2extraordinary – have a looksee.
This really is a life changing/saving challenge for us. And will be a proper good titter on the way.
All applications to join to :

Brilliant brilliant effort from Timbo and very best of luck to the team of 10 ( don’t be shy if you need to shed a few lbs-contact Timbo ) 2015 will be huge year for many O2e ers
Have a great weekend
Thanks and very best
