Kirsty Gallacher ran on water to launch the 2016 Sport Relief merchandise collection
Kirsty Gallacher ran on water for Sport Relief.
The 40-year-old stunned passersby as she jogged across the Serpentine Lake in London in order to launch the official 2016 Sport Relief merchandise collection and she admits conditions were far colder than she was expecting.
She said: "As a sports presenter and someone who loves keeping fit, I was really up for taking part and this was definitely a new experience for me; to say it was cold was an understatement.
"When Sainsbury's asked me to get involved and run across water, I wanted to give it a good go as Sport Relief is all about taking part and doing yourself proud. I have my official Sport Relief kit, including the t-shirt and entries to the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Games are now open, so it's easy to sign up and get involved."
People are encouraged to show their support for Sport Relief by purchasing official merchandise, including t-shirts, wristbands, deeley boppers and mugs, from Sainsbury's or by signing up to the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Games, which take place between March 18-20.
Shoppers can sign up to the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Games via sportrelief.com, where they can get involved by either walking, running, swimming or cycling to raise funds for Sport Relief at over 1,000 events taking place throughout the UK.
