My husband's aim is to run 2 Half Marathons this year for his chosen charity being The Proffesional Drivers Foundation, I can now update you all to say his first challenge is now complete.
This was the BUPA Great North Run on Sunday 16th Sept, which I am very pleased to say he completed safely, in 2hrs 2mins, I think is a great time! Even though he was slightly dissappointed as this was 1 minute slower than last year....... 1 minute, what is a minute, when you have just completed 13.1 miles, in the rain!
His 2nd challenge is yet to come which is in Ireland on Sunday November 18th worryingly named " Run The Gauntlet", a course that goes through The Gap of Dunloe between the beautiful Lakes of Killarney.
His aim now is not only to complete the second challenge, but to also hit this current target of £2,000. (£1,000 for each challenge & we are already heading towards that)
Steve has chosen to run for a very small charity but one that is very close to his heart, as it is supports an industry that has been a big part of his life for over three decades. The haulage industry is a major part of the countries infrastructure and supplies everything from medicines to the food in our homes. All of these goods would not reach their destinations without the hard work of the warehouse staff and the drivers of thousands of haulage companies across the UK and Ireland.
These people work relentlessly 52 weeks of the year both night and day ensuring all our needs are met whatever the weather.
The charity is Professional Drivers Foundation, a small team dedicated to help people within the haulage industry in their time of need.
People that may have suffered heart attacks, strokes or been seriously injured in an accident. People who through no fault of their own need support not just financially but also giving advise to help them through the hard times they have envisaged
So please please help Steve, to help them by sponsoring his marathons with a donation, it doesnt matter how small as every pound will help.
