Our Great South Run team for 2019 are hard at work with their training with just over 4 weeks to go, have you sponsored them yet? If not, you can do so here.
We’re introducing each of our fantastic runners in our blog series, next up is Laura Lee.
Laura is a newcomer to running with no previous experience in races; as such she is feeling slightly dubious about what she has let herself in for!
“I have been using the couch to 5k app to improve my health for a little while now and have been running 5k regularly, but this will be a huge step up and a real challenge.”
Like many in our team, it is the family connection within The Mud House Children’s Foundation which introduced Laura to the charity and this fundraising effort.
“I heard from our lovely Grandma that the community in Tanzania are currently experiencing a drought, so the charity was desperately searching for additional funds to help the community to find food during this tough time. When I look at my young family, I feel very fortunate for the life we are so lucky to lead, so will do what I can to try and help others.”
We’re very lucky to have Laura on board, please do support her if you can, it’ll certainly help her around the 10 miles and make a huge different to the families in our rural community in Tanzania. Click here to sponsor.
