Carolyn is a seasoned runner having completed a number of half marathons in the past, but she has never tackled a marathon before.
She said: “I wanted to challenge myself and what better way than to run a marathon ‘once’ and I really wanted to run London. I got a place via my running club ballot and will take my place on the start line with over 35,000 other runners this Sunday.”
Growing up, Carolyn volunteered time and raised money for children with disabilities in the North West and now has friends who use the services provided by The Percy Hedley Foundation.
“It was the ideal choice for me (to raise money for),” she said. “I’m also keen to raise money for a local charity where the support benefits the local community.”
Already, Carolyn has raised a staggering £800 and hopes her total will increase in the coming days.
Huge good luck from everyone at the Foundation Carolyn and thank you for #MakingADifference
