20,000 people took to the streets of Birmingham on Sunday to run the Bupa half Marathon under glorious heat and blue skies. With only 2 runners supporting our local Kidderminster Kemp Hospice. Team PEAK consisted of Julianne Baker and Sister Katie O Regan from Fleet Innovations. They both completed the race with very respectable times of 2hours 08 minutes and Katie in 2 hours 25 minutes.
The sisters raised in excess of £380 just missing their target of £500. If you would like to help them get to their target please donate via the link below and please remember every little helps.
Katie said “With no training prior to the event I had resorted to the fact that I would be happy to complete the 13.1 miles journey however on the day seeing so many brave and wonderful people doing the half Marathon I decided to run it and that’s what I did. It was very tough but not as tough as what some people are faced with on a daily basis, I’m just so glad that I am fit and healthy and that I could give something back to our community. I would like to thank everyone who helped us raise money for KEMP Hospice.”
