    I was wondering if anyone had arranged a sponsored event?

    I live in Japan and was right in the midst of the earthquake and tsunami, i got flown home by my government and am planning on heading back to Japan in 3 weeks. While I'm in the UK though I want to try and raise some money.

    The idea we've had is a sponsored walk /charity collection from London's main airport to the Japanese embassy (via a few tourist spots) totaling 20.11 miles.

    I've just emailed the London police to ask if the route is ok and how to go about getting permission but, as I've never done anything like this before I have no idea what I should be doing.

    Anyone got any advise or stories that could help me pull this off.

    sounds like a nice effort and certainly a good cause. I think if you'd wear the same outfit as in your profile pic, you might attract more guys to walk thereby raising more money :-) just a thought! Good luck.

    It's an idea indeed, especially if I went through soho but the UK in March might be a little chilly.
