Danielle, Amy and Charlotte ran the Torbay 10K marathon to raise cash for charity Daisy Garland. We raised £671.58 in total which will contribute towards helping families that have children with epilepsy. Daisy Garland do this by supplying night time sleep monitors and a support group for those families and children.
We choose this particular charity as the founder is a client of ours and they are based in Totnes.
We wanted to set ourselves a challenge, one where we felt that people could watch our progress and get behind. We started our training in April and two of the girls had never run a mile let alone over 6.
Needless to say it was a slow progress, but we were committed and ran three times a week. We had lots of sponsorship from friends, family and our lovely customers.
The race took place on August 21, 2017. The weather was wet and cold but we powered through with the support of our friends and family. Danielle finished it in 1hour 1min. Amy and Charlotte did it in 1hour 9mins. We definitely felt like we earnt those medals.
