We always like to do our bit for charitable and good causes and so when our Michelle announced that she and her friend were going to take part in the Cancer Research UK Race for Life we were ready to support her every step of the way!
Michelle has completed the 5K Race for Life for several years, but this time she was setting herself the new challenge of completing the 10K, something she was very nervous about having never completed a course of this distance.
After a lot of preparation and lots of love and support from friends, family and Fifteen, Michelle and Claire completed the 10K in an impressive 1 hour and 19 minutes. But more importantly, together they’ve raised almost £500 for the charity. A fantastic achievement when their goal was to reach £200!
“Everyone has been so generous and supportive, it’s incredible! We struggled on the day, it was very hot and warm and the length of the course was a little overwhelming at first sight, but we did it and under our target time as well. It was a fantastic atmosphere and a great day. Thinking of all the support and money we had raised for the charity carried us to the finish line.”
