Katherine Gray, Senior Land Negotiator at Mackenzie Smith has been granted a place in this years’ London marathon on Sunday the 22nd of April after several years of applying to get involved.
Katherine is running with her sister Katrina to raise money The Outward Bound Trust, which is an educational charity.
The Outward Bound Trust will use the money raised to help as many young people as possible to have access to safe, adventurous experiences through which they can raise their self-esteem, realise their full potential and achieve more than they ever thought possible.
The sisters have been putting in some dedicated training time, they are currently up to running 16 miles non -stop on Saturdays to build up their stamina, as well as shorter runs and swimming training in the week. Those local to Fleet and Elvetham Heath may have spotted the twins bobbing along in synchronisation.
The charity has set a goal for Katherine and Katrina to raise £1,750.00 each! If you consider it a worthy cause and appreciate the dedication that goes into preparing for and running a marathon why not sponsor Katherine, simply click on this link to visit the giving website.
Best of Luck to Katherine and Katrina
