Our inspirational Treasurer, Natalie (read her Story at https://storyfmr.net/natalie-waghorns-story/ ) has raised a fabulous total of £1,175 for us, by joining the Great North Run on Sunday 8th September 2019.
The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the UK. Participants run between Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields. This year about 57,000 people registered to take part. The run is a fantastic spectacle of colour, support and achievement and was televised live on BBC One.
Here is Natalie awaiting her turn in the starting pen, wearing UV clothing, sunglasses and sunblock. It was a beautiful sunny day and it highlighted our mission to somehow try and ensure everyone takes such steps to protect their skin against the harmful effects of the sun.
Natalie successfully completed the run in a creditable time of 2 hours 19 minutes.
Not satisfied with this fantastic achievement, Natalie has recently completed the Great South Run, further nurturing her competitive spirit!
Very well done Natalie!
