Julie Hits the Streets of Paris for Charity!

Not content with covering 168 miles by completing the Liverpool and Sheffield half marathons, and a coast-to-coast bike ride from Whitehaven to Sunderland in 2010, Julie Sykes of JCS HR Consulting is this year undertaking four half marathons to raise money for local charities.

Her mammoth athletic task even takes Julie overseas kicking off on 6 March in Paris. “Being able to combine something that I love doing, with raising money for charity is fantastic,” said Julie. “And if I can throw in a visit to a beautiful city of culture like Paris in the process, then I’m all for it!”

As well as Paris, Julie will also be running half marathons in Liverpool on 27 March, Leeds on 8 May and the Great North Run in Newcastle on 18 September.

The charities that will benefit from Julie’s efforts are the Anthony Nolan Trust and two domestic violence services in Leeds and Skipton, for whom she also provides HR support on a voluntary basis.
