If you follow us on Twitter or Facebook, you may have noticed that we’re gearing up to run the Adidas 5K Women’s Challenge, all in the name of charity. Jeans for Genes is a worthy cause, providing support and care for children with genetic disorders, as well as They also help to fund research into genetics and the development of effective treatments and cures. Donna herself is a patron of the charity, and as such has pledged for Team Donna Ida to raise £50,000 by running the 5K on Sunday 11th September... no mean feat!
Team Donna Ida includes Donna Ida staff members, bloggers, fashion journalists and friends, who have all agreed to take part and do their best at raising as many donations as possible to hit this huge target.
