    Story

    Myself & my husband Gary Watts are running the Cardiff Half marathon on October 1st 2017 in aid of a local charity ' HEAR TO HELP'

    Hear to Help is a local Charity, set up in memory of Rhianna Thomas. Rhianna herself was diagnosed with an extremely rare cancer and underwent treatment. During this time the community of Builth Wells & surrounding areas supported both Rhianna and her family through fundraising events. The support received was most touching and whilst undergoing treatment Rhianna often talked about setting up a charity to help others, to repay some of the kindness she had experienced.

    Unfortunately Rhianna passed away in March 2014. In her memory and to fulfil her wishes the charity Hear to Help has been set up.

    We have chosen this charity 'Hear to Help' as we wanted to put something back into our local community, Sadly we never knew Rhianna but knowing we are helping her wishes towards a charity set up in her name will be a great honour.

      Not long to go... 9 days in fact 😱 We've been running smaller 5-7 miles last 2 weeks just to keep our legs working. A few more training runs next week and what will be will be 😀 Our Cardiff packs came today so it's feeling even more real. This is our first half marathon and we aim to try our best. Thank you all so much for our donations to date, it means so much to us both. Xx

      Yesterday myself & Gary took part in the Cardiff 10k.. this is half of what the Cardiff half will be. It was a fabulous atmosphere & just a taste of what to expect on October 1st. Training is going good, we have 4 weeks to get some miles in ready for the big day. As always Gary and myself are so grateful for the donations received on our just giving page and to us personally. We have both been overwhelmed with the generosity of you all ♥️ With 4 weeks to go there is no rest for the wicked.. bring it on 👊🏼

      Training is finally going to plan, myself, Gary and our friend Lianne who is also running the Cardiff Half marathon meet twice a week for training runs.. this week we have managed a 6 mile run and a longer 10 mile run, with 7 weeks to go hopefully we will improve, get stronger,, hopefully faster and rock out a decent time on the day. We just want to thank all of you that has sponsored us so far, it keeps us going knowing we are doing it for a great cause and knowing you are all behind us 😀 7 weeks to go until the big day 🙈🙈🙈
