Connie Lowe is running the London Marathon for TWOWEEKS

April 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

Every year TwoWeeks sees wonderful people volunteering their time, energy and enthusiasm to help us fundraise. One of our latest supporters is Connie Lowe, who will be running The London Marathon on Sunday 22nd April to help raise money for TwoWeeks. We asked her to share a few words. If you would like to donate to TwoWeeks in aid of Connie’s fantastic commitment then please do so here.

What you do Connie?

I work and live in Auckland, New Zealand.

How did you get involved with TwoWeeks?

I was introduced to TwoWeeks by a friend who informed me the charity needed a finance volunteer.  I went to one of the introduction sessions and was inspired by how people were using their skills and their vocation to help children at the Lily.  I have enjoyed my time working as a volunteer for TwoWeeks and I have made some great friends along the way too.

How are you feeling about the upcoming marathon?

I am excited to be running my first marathon, but instead of running it for personal fulfilment I thought I could use my marathon entry to help somebody or something and TwoWeeks immediately came to mind!  To finish the marathon would be a nice personal achievement but to know that someone’s life could be impacted or changed is even more rewarding.
