Our doer of the month for August 2015 is Sophie Cardinal who ran in the 5k in Gosport. We were thrilled that her race went well and that she set a new personal best.

Sophie used Do Nation as she wanted to do a sponsored run but didn’t want to raise money – she wanted to raise actions. Before her challenge she managed to raise 38 pledges – this equates to 4,457 kg CO2 saved in just two months.

That’s the same carbon as is emitted by 9 flights from London to New York by plane.

After her challenge we spoke to Sophie – “Often people feel powerless when it comes to climate change but using Do Nation as a platform for my 5k, really helped to show me, my friends and family how important the little actions are in helping to look after our environment.”

You can see Sophie’s challenge here.

What does it mean to be a doer of the month?

We really like to celebrate our most enthusiastic and inspirational Doers. So each month, we reward our the person or team who collects the most pledges with a year’s supply of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream!
