Tomorrow, Creative Director Mandy will be running her first half marathon, fundraising for the amazing British Heart Foundation. £170 has been raised in less than 24 hours. Please support this amazing cause (and Mandy’s motivation) go to Mandy’s Just Giving Page. Here is her story:
I have recently taken up running. I love it. It doesn’t only give me time away from the studio, to let ideas flow, it also gives me perspective. I signed up to do the half marathon back at the end of January, meaning I only had ONE month to train for it. The most I have done is 1.5 hours, I expect tomorrow to take around 2.5 hours. It’s not going to be easy. I will be running alongside my dad who is 60, and has been running for 30 years (I started at the same age he did). The furthest I have run yet is 10 miles (once) meaning I have a long way to go! This is going to be a huge challenge as it’s not just a flat half marathon, it is off road, through the woods with steep inclines. It will be at the beautiful Harewood House.
I have never done anything like this so it is definitely a challenge.
I am looking to raise money for the amazing British Heart Foundation, who give so much to many people with heart conditions and support to their families. They are the UK’s number one heart charity and through 50 years of funding cutting edge research they have already made a big difference to people’s lives. Every penny counts towards this amazing organisation. If you can donate £2, £5 anything will help not only towards BHF, but towards my motivation on the day. It will definitely get me through!
Thank you for your support. x
