The London Marathon is coming up and we are getting excited because we know lots of people currently training for it while also raising money for great charities. Caroline used to work with us as an Account Manager, travelling up and down the country visiting universities and colleges and now she is studying Law in London and training for her next race.
You can find out how to get involved and support her at the bottom of the page.
What do you do when you’re not running?
“When I’m not running, I study Law in London, and work for pro-bono legal advice clinic.”
Why you are running?/What do you like about it?
“I run because I like the simplicity of being able to put your trainers on and go out exercise and get some fresh air. In London being able to escape the city for a few hours, and go down by the Themes is a really enjoyable way to spend a Sunday. The feeling of finishing a long run followed by a cold beer and nice meal is the best feeling.”
Who are you fundraising for and why?
“I gave the decision of which charities would benefit most from my fundraising a great deal of thought. The reason I chose the National Deaf Children’s Society NDCS was because I believe in and understand their aims. I have worked closely with deaf adults, children and BSL interpreters. I understand the need for extra funding in so many areas of education for deaf children and think the NDCS are an authentic and conscientious charity that will put the money raised to great causes. I knew they were a charity I could get behind and feel passionate about fundraising for.”
