Beachy Head Marathon - There is no "pain without gain"

Posted: Wednesday 18th November 2015 by Volunteering

Thank you to all of you who sponsored me for this amazing scenic event.

YES, I completed the marathon which I was walking to raise funds for the Nower Wood New Build Project Education Centre. The new facilities will give opportunities for bespoke sessions for both children and adults with special educational needs and be more accessible to people with limited mobility

My Marathon walk started well but after the first three hours the ball and toes of one of my feet began burning (all of those engaged in running long distance walking will no what I mean!). Thanks to a fellow walker who massaged my foot and a paramedic I sped on and achieved my goal – I completed the Marathon in 7hrs 44minutes.

My website is still open for donations.

I am sure that SWT would welcome any fund raising efforts for their various projects and especially for the new build at Nower Wood – you don’t have to be a Marathon walker!
