Nicky will be undertaking her first 10k run at the British 10k through the streets of Westminster on Sunday 15th July.
Mark has been chosen as the UK ambassador for the Helsinki Half Marathon and as well as promoting the event, will be running this on Saturday 9th June. He will then take on the British 10k to encourage Nicky around the route and finish with the Great North Run on Sunday 9th September.
We are both challenging ourselves in this way to raise funds for the fantastic charity Teens Unite.
Teens Unite is the only charity in the UK to provide on-going support to 13-24 year olds fighting cancer from diagnosis through to post-remission. Seven young people are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK and Teens Unite brings them together through workshops and activities so they can spend valuable time with others their age in a similar situation to themselves. The charity helps to rebuild the confidence and self-esteem of those it supports and prevents feelings of isolation during what can be a long and lonely battle.
