KATE’S MARATHON FOR MIND

October 3rd, 2017 in Notice Board by admin

On Sunday 15th October, I will be undertaking the Birmingham International Marathon.

You may have seen me plodding around the local roads since I moved to the village 18 months ago.
Having relocated after a brief stint in St Helens it has made a refreshing change to run in the countryside
and admire the views.

I made a promise to myself that I would run a marathon before I reached the age of 40, so I don’t have
long left as the big day fast approaches.

My friends and I are raising money for Mind. This charity is really important to me, many people suffer
with mental health issues in silence and don’t seek the help they need, Mind provide valuable support.
Mental health issues are becoming less of a taboo subject with a lot of high profile media coverage and
even some Royal support. Our fundraising involves a variety of activities. My work colleagues are really
looking forward to a quiz and bake off a few days before the event.

I’m really looking forward to the challenge, training has been really tough, more for my brain than my
legs. I’m hoping my friends and family will have a large glass of gin and plenty of food waiting at the finish
line.

If you would like to support us in our endeavours our fundraising page can be found at the following

Thanks for your support
