‘Mr T. Rex’ running to raise funds for the RNLI

Jay King, our newest and youngest Exmouth RNLI Tour Guide, is doing a 25k run around Exmouth starting 0900 on Saturday 3rd April 2021 to raise much needed funds for the RNLI.

Mr T Rex’s route

 
To make the challenge even more difficult he will be wearing a 7 foot dinosaur suit and running as ‘Mr T REX’.
Jay said, “The RNLI do a wonderful job and have been affected by the current situation with their fundraising. To help this amazing service i will be running 25km (15 1/2 miles) , Mr T Rex has great admiration for the jobs the volunteers at the RNLI do and wants to help, unfortunatly he cant help by being crew and saving people in danger as I can’t swim because I’m a dinsosaur so I have decided to help in other ways. The run will take place on the 3rd April 2021. I will run the planned route shown around Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton starting at the Exmouth lifeboat station at 9am and finishing back at the lifeboat house a few hours after ( normal running conditions it would be about 2 and a half hours but remember I am a dinosaur so this may take a little longer). You can follow us on facebook @MrTrexDevon for videos of how I am getting into shape for the run and live updates on the day of where I am on the route so you can say hello and give me a wave, throw me a bone to eat to keep my energy up. There will be collection buckets on the run so if I pass your house or work place on the route and you want to give a donation you can do or you can also donate as below. Please give as little or as much as you can and help me reach the target. The RNLI do such an amazing job and are mainly all volunteers – they spend hours at sea and risk their own lifes for anyone in need or in trouble in the waters and around the coast and we should all be proud to have such an amazing service. “
 
Jay has opened a Just Giving page as below – please give generously – thank you.
