Kent House has a track record of running in marathons and half-marathons all over UK and Europe in the effort to raise money for different charities. In 2007, I run in the Flora London Marathon and with the support of my Kent House colleagues, we managed to raise over £2000 for Children with Leukaemia. This year, I will be running in three races and our Kent House team is hoping to raise over £1000 for the Cancer Research UK and the Cam-mind charities.
The running season will start with the Race for Life on the 14th of June 2009 around the Jesus Green in Cambridge. The aim is to run 5k with other women determined to raise awareness about cancer and to inspire people to take part in a Race for Life event, no matter their age, shape, size or fitness level. If you would like to sponsor me then please visit my online fundraising page.
And lastly, my third race will be the Chariots of Fire on the 20th of September 2009. This race is planned to follow “in the footsteps of the famous film, taking its scenic route through the streets and colleges of Cambridge, with teams of six running a 1.7 mile course in relay format”. I will be running with 5 other friends and colleagues from the Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge. With the kind support of Kent House, our running team will be raising as much money as possible for Cam-mind, which is the longest established mental health charity in Cambridge.
