Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
Myself, Will Cowell, Brad Bayliss, and Les Endean will be running 150 miles from coast to coast (Scarborough to Blackpool) in just three days. We will be raising money for two charities, which are Blackpool Carers Centre, and Blackpool FC Community Trust (BFCCT), which is where I work.
The challenge is a huge part of the motivation but the people I support through the work I carry out at the Trust, is also a big factor. One of the programmes that I deliver as an Inclusion Officer at BFCCT is a Veterans programme. Within this programme, Les attends as a veteran and Brad supports me as a volunteer. All of us have seen first hand how much impact this programme (and others that the Trust deliver) has on people. We are also delighted that Will Cowell, one of my colleagues, is joining us as he has recently completed 100 mile endurance race and raised money for an Autism charity. His experience will be invaluable.
The other half of the monies that we raise will go towards the Blackpool Carers Centre as some of the individuals who attend our veterans group also receive support from Blackpool Carers Centre. They do amazing work and knowing this will help me when I am feeling tired.
