Just a quite update..

I, Karen, have sadly had to withdraw from this challenge.  It breaks my heart but I've been diagnosed with a pretty serious injury to my foot... posterior tibial tendon dysfunction.  If I continue running before I get it sorted, I will do irreparable damage.  Gemma and Diane are continuing.  I am so sorry to anyone that has sponsored me and I will definitely be doing another challenge in 2018 to pay you lovely people back.

James Dwerryhouse was Noah's friend and he sadly died in August 2016 aged just 7. Despite his health issues, James was a beautiful little boy who was full of fun and with a cheeky personality that made such an impression on all those he met. 

Gemma, Diane and I want to raise funds doing this crazy challenge to provide cover for and help improve the play area, that James used to love so much at his school, Thomas Wolsey in Ipswich so it can be used in all weathers for both play and learning.
