Good luck to all four of our fabulous runners in this weekend’s Vitality Big Half, we’re so appreciative of all the time, effort, training and fundraising that has gone in to getting this far!
First time half marathon runner and golf pro Chris said:
“I’m really pleased to be given this opportunity to run for RASASC Guildford. Sadly, there is a huge need for services like those provided by RASASC, please help me raise as much as possible to help them!”
For marketing analyst Sally, lockdown reignited a love of running, inspiring her to enter the half marathon:
“When coronavirus struck, I discovered running again, appreciating the peace and quiet of running solo. My goal for the day is to finish! Raising money for RASASC will be a massive motivator to help get me round.”
Mum Sharon is also returning to running, having run three marathons for charity in the past. She says:
“After a few years off, I think I’m going to be focusing on just getting round! I want to raise awareness of RASASC and the great work they do, there’s a shame and embarrassment that exists around rape and sexual abuse, and organisations like RASASC are vital in supporting people to help them start to rebuild their lives.”
And it will also be a first half marathon for 26-year-old helpline volunteer Stephanie. She says:
“I started running in lockdown after the gyms closed and found it wasn’t so bad after all! When the opportunity arose to run for RASASC I signed up before I could change my mind! Raising money for such an important cause is what will really motivate me to make it round on the day.”
Thank you to our fabulous four, for running on our behalf and raising awareness of RASASC and the vital, life-changing work we do.
