Sleigh My Name's Story

Sleigh My Name is a natural born entertainer who lives to have everyone, literally, in stitches. Believing that laughter is the best medicine (and also the best fundraiser), they were partly responsible for making Christmas Jumper Day such a hit when they wore one while volunteering at the charity a few Christmas’ ago.

Every year since, their Christmas Jumper Day has got bigger, bolder and this year ‘bling-ier and bauble-ier’ than ever! Leading the charge for donations Sleigh My Name will be sporting a specially commissioned Christmas Jumper in this year’s Turkey Dash. Sleigh My Name is taking the race seriously and has sweated bucket loads in their festive sweater to get in shape. They fear getting a stitch, or that pins and knitting-needles may Christmas-hamper their chances, but, in reality, showing-off to the crowd mid-race is the most likely action that could cost them the race. Wherever Sleigh My Name finishes, they just hope their fun approach to the Dash will at least win the nation’s hearts and donations.
