Kim and Gill really are Good For Age!
We are a Gym Owner and an IT Consultant who have a love of running , crazy challenges and fortunately a similar sense of humour.
After several years of pounding the streets of Warrington and having received another rejection letter from the London Marathon Ballot we decided to do something about it. The only way we could guarantee running the London Marathon together was to achieve a ‘Good For Age’ time and so our next challenge was set.
We achieved our goal in the Manchester Marathon April 2017 and Gill thought that was it and it would be the main activity for 2018 ; we would run the London Marathon together for the first and last time. However, Kim had other ideas and decided that as a birthday present we would run the Manchester, Boston and London Marathons all within 2 weeks of each other in April 2018.
It's a good job we are friends, can you imagine what the present would be otherwise!!
3 Marathons in 2 Weeks - yes we are mad!!
So that we did not try to back out of the crazy challenge we decided to raise money for a local charity in Warrington.
Our chosen Charity is the River Reeves Foundation and to specifically raise funds to staff and co-ordinate a project for a ‘Future in Minds’ bus. The aim is to help support a secondary schools project offering young people mental help support.
Specialist staff will work with vulnerable youngsters who might be struggling with bereavement, self harm issues and those more vulnerable to suicide because of a lack of support.
So please donate as much as you can and remember every pound you donate makes every pound of the streets we do worthwhile.
