Meet Sarah – she’s running in the London Marathon on Sunday 26th April to raise funds for our charity.
Sarah has already smashed her fundraising target of £1,750 and at the time of going to print she had raised over £2,200 – a fantastic achievement! The money will go to William Budd ward to thank staff for the care given to a family member. Here’s Sarah’s story:
“Running the London Marathon has been a dream of mine and I’m so pleased that I can raise money in the process, for a charity that means a lot to me.
“I have chosen William Budd ward because the staff cared for a family member before they passed away just six weeks after being diagnosed with cancer. They supported the whole family and made our time at the hospital more bearable, so this is a way of saying thank you.
“I’ve already proudly worn my RUH running vest in the Mud Nation 10k Obstacle Course Race back in October, the Secret Santa 10 miler in December and more recently the Wiltshire 10 miler in February which did get cancelled, but I still did my 10 miles on a treadmill.
“I am also running in the Bath Half and Devizes Half Marathon. To raise more money I organised a Body Shop party and raffle last year, a teddy bear’s picnic and non-uniform day in January and a cake sale for my 250th parkrun in February.”
Sarah – thank you for all your hard work to raise money to benefit patients and their families on William Budd ward. We wish you and the rest of our inspiring runners the best of luck for the London Marathon.
