TWOWEEKS 2012 Fundraising: Connie’s marathon experience
June 24, 2012 § Leave a comment
We posted on the blog in April about Connie Lowe’s wonderful fundraising efforts for TWOWEEKS. Well, she ran the marathon on the 22nd of April in an impressive 4 hours 24 minutes and 13 seconds and she had an absolute blast doing it.
“Being a first time marathon runner I didn’t know what to expect particularly during the last 10km as I had never run that far before. It was painful towards the last half an hour, I was on the brink of wanting to walk it, but I persevered and ran all the way. I had a lot of fun, the crowd were very supportive, and it was an amazing experience to run around London and to see all the historic landmarks.
It was rewarding to run with a purpose, knowing that I had the support and encouragement of my friends and all the people who had kindly donated to TwoWeeks. I am so happy to have had the opportunity to run on behalf of TwoWeeks – I would do it again and encourage others to do the same!”
Connie is a fantastic example of the type of volunteering and fundraising that TWOWEEKS is always looking for more of so if you’re interested in getting involved, please get in touch.
Connie’s fundraising page will be open until September so please lend your support. Every little bit means the world!
