Doing the running man for Virgin Money Giving

I had an energetic start on Wednesday morning and had a full day of telling people about Virgin Money Giving and our sponsorship of the Virgin London Marathon. Joining in with 200 people in our take on the running man dance was a great way to start the day - and to dust off my training shoes...


Watch the latest PitchTV show

This month's PitchTV show is now airing onboard Virgin Atlantic planes, exposing the latest batch of video pitches from budding entreprenuers to the hundreds of business professionals who regularly fly with Virgin Atlantic. Hopefully among the people watching in the air or online here will be someone who might be willing to help take one of these business ideas forward. 


Virgin London Marathon update

Since the launch of Virgin Money Giving on 14 October we have had a great response, and lots of running man videos coming in. My personal favourite is the ‘DaviesBruvvers’ fantastic interpretation of the Running Man – they certainly outdid my attempts at the dance which you can also see on my YouTube page! Take a look for yourself and why not put together your own video - remember for every running man video submitted to YouTube, ?5 will go to charity.

The Run with Richard competition has also seen a huge level of interest, but there are still a few days to enter. All you have to do is send me a message of 50 words or less, telling me why you deserve a place in the Virgin London Marathon before the 16 November 2009. And if you don’t want to write in, why not send in a video?
The winner will get a place in the marathon and have the chance to join me at the starting line.

With most people now sure of their place in the first Virgin London Marathon, it’s a fantastic time to put your own Virgin Money Giving page together – it only takes a few minutes and there are plenty of ways to personalise the page and highlight your charitable cause.

Over the next five years, to tie in with our sponsorship of the Marathon, Virgin Money Giving aims to help raise ?250 million, but the site is not just for the runners out there. Already we have got people aiming to swim the channel, others who will be cycling across America and a few who will be walking over hot coals - all in the name of charity!
