About

I am a member of local running club, Sedgley Striders.  I was lucky enough to win the 2019 London Marathon place in the annual Striders ballot. 

If I am going to put myself through 26.2 miles of pain - it makes sense to do it for a good cause - and what better cause than to raise money for a worthy charity in memory of Foz!

A keen runner back in the day, Foz ran the Wolverhampton Marathon twice and rumour has it, that in true Foz style, he stopped for a crafty pint on route before continuing on his way and crossing the finish line!

It's going to be a tough challenge, but raising money in memory of Foz will make every step worthwile - and I have no doubt that he will be watching over me and offering support in his own special way.  In fact I can hear him on the finish line now, Wolves fixtures permitting of course....."get a bloody move on Salty, the pub is open you know"! 

All donations will be gratefully received. I really hope I can do Foz proud and raise some much-needed funding to support the work of this fantastic charity. 

Thank you. 
Karen
