Friends honour Anita’s 50th birthday with 50 fundraising challenges

Friends of Anita Newman have commemorated her 50th birthday by organising a month-long virtual challenge to raise funds for St Barnabas House and Sarcoma UK who supported Anita in her last year of life.

Anita’s close friend, Zoe, came up with the idea for the ‘50 for 50’ fundraiser which has seen over 30 friends each take on 50 challenges throughout September, completing the final part of their challenge on 29 September 2020, which would have been Anita’s 50th birthday.

Zoe, who ran 50 miles over the 29 days, says, “Anita talked about having one hell of a party for her 50th, but sadly that wasn’t to happen. Everyone knew Anita’s drive and passion for fundraising, so with that in mind, to mark her 50th birthday I decided to put on her own charity event.”
