The SportPursuit Pledge Ledge – Voting Heats Up!

Things are heating up on the SportPursuit Pledge Ledge with the top five entries currently neck and neck according to votes. The £500 prize is still any of theirs to claim.

Overwhelmed by the positive response we received from the entrants and having been quite moved by their incredible ambitions for 2012, we have decided to award prizes to not just the winner, but the top 5 entrants as well.

We applaud each individual who has had the courage to enter the Pledge Ledge and we hope the knowledge that they alone have set themselves the greatest challenge for 2012 will spur them on.

Voting is open until Midday, Monday 13/02/2012 so don’t forget to pledge your support.


Here’s the pledges of the current top five:

I will post details of how people can donate to the cause as soon as I have the web page set up. So even if I don’t win, you guys can still donate to the cause. The more support it gets, the more wind I will have under my sails!”
