Who doesn’t love a challenge?
I’m Kathryn and I love getting outside and running. I also really love helping people.
Put the two together and bam:
Challenge 1: Run a sub 4 hour marathon
Challenge 2: Raise £5000 for an incredible local charity
Why a marathon? This will be a difficult goal for me, I work full time and have a six year old so it will be tricky fitting the training miles in. I have always wanted to try and run the marathon distance, my personal best distance at the moment is 14miles so I will need to nearly double my distance PB to reach the end of a marathon, 26.2 miles.
Why STLFT? 1 in 2 people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. The diagnosis and treatment are exhausting and many people lose income through this distressing time. STLFT is a comprehensive website offering a wide variety of gifts and experiences to those diagnosed and their loved ones. These gifts provide cancer patients with a brief respite from the trauma of living with their diagnosis and the subsequent treatment. I’ve decided on an ambitious fundraising target of £5000. I will be planning some specific events to help me reach my target..... so watch this space!!!
‘Something To Look Forward To’ benefits people affected by cancer who are also suffering as a result of loss of income due to their illness. The charity provides positive things to look forward to generously donated by companies and individuals.
