I have been a resident of Walthamstow for over 14 years and love the place I live. I became involved with the emergency night shelter through the 7Days4stow micro volunteering project.

Running is my hobby but I have never taken part in this many races before. This challenge also includes my first marathon.

Event details

Seven Races 4 Stow

There are so many reasons why people end up on the street. But when they get there, they need help to put their life back together, and that help needs money to make sure it continues. The night shelter is part of the network of services that provide emergency help and assistance to those that need it.

I am running seven races to raise money for the shelter to make sure it can continue supporting the homeless of Waltham Forest.

The races are

Run to the beat half marathon September 8th.

Oxford half marathon 13th October

Greenwich Park 10k 30th November

London Santa Run 7th December

Garmin Race Your Pace half marathon 15th February

Bath half marathon 2nd march

Brighton Marathon 6th April

This will be a tough challenge but not as tough as living on the streets. Any amount you can donate will help make a difference.

Thank you
