Lauren was originally going to run the EMF Half Marathon in May 2020 however due to the impacts of Covid-19 the event was unable to go ahead. Lauren instead took on the virtual challenge this year, running her own route and running the distance in her own local area.
Lauren choose two very important charities close to her heart to donate to:
The first is in memory of my beautiful friend Kirsty Maxwell. The money will go to the Kirsty Maxwell Charity which has been set up to help other families who find themselves in the same heart breaking situation as Kirsty’s family. She was taken from us too soon in circumstances that still remain unclear. Kirsty’s family are still searching for answers as to what happened in Benidorm. We all miss her more each day.
The second is the British Heart Foundation. My Gran passed away suddenly in September 2018 and I want to run in her memory. I still can’t believe she is no longer here and I miss her every single day.
Lauren originally set her target at £500 but later raised this to £800 due to the amount of donations she had already received. Lauren has now achieved 140% off her £800 target – raising a grand total of £1,125!
Massive well done to Lauren!
