A busy sporting month

March 28th saw Julie embark on the first of two half marathons in the space of a month, plus a coast-to-coast bike ride – all in aid of a Yorkshire based domestic violence charity.

“I have previously run several half marathons, four London marathons and completed a 500km bike ride through Poland in aid of various national charities, but last year I worked with this domestic violence service, in a professional capacity, and was incredibly impressed with the work they do to support victims and survivors of domestic abuse,“ said Julie.

“If I can help them to continue with their work by raising funds through sponsorship, then all that exercise is definitely worthwhile!” A spokesman for the charity said: “Julie was very professional and knowledgeable in her dealings with us, and we were extremely pleased with the work she undertook on our behalf. We are delighted that she was so impressed with the value and importance of our work that she wants to raise funds on our behalf. We wish her every success in all three events.”

The events Julie will be tackling are the Liverpool half marathon on 28 March, a coast-to-coast bike ride from Whitehaven to Sunderland from 5-8 April, and the Sheffield half marathon on 25 April.
