Story

I am really excited to be running the Hackney Half Marathon for Hackney Night Shelter. 

I am no runner, but these guys are doing incredible work in Hackney with some of the most vulnerable people in society. I am running to fundraise for this important charity. 

The Hackney Night Shelter supports people with pathways out of homelessness as well as providing emergency shelter for homeless people 365 days a year. Read more about what they are doing here

I have previously worked closely with this charity in a professional setting and have so much respect for their work and how they always go above and beyond to support the community.

So please, donate and give as much as you can. Help me to raise some funds for this incredible organisation so that they can keep providing shelter and routes out of homelessness. And of course...help me finish! 

Training started today! 13 weeks before race day!

Thank you all for your support ♥️
