My story

[p]Thank you so much for visiting my page! I am honoured to be running the Virgin London Marathon in support of Refuge.[/p][p]On any given day Refuge supports almost 5,000 clients, helping them rebuild their lives and overcome many different forms of violence and abuse; for example domestic violence, sexual violence, so-called ‘honour’-based violence, human trafficking and modern slavery, and female genital mutilation.[/p][p]Refuge’s specialist services include refuges, independent advocacy, community outreach projects, culturally specific services and the 24 hour National Domestic Violence Helpline, run in partnership with Women’s Aid.[/p][p]I have never run a marathon before and previously the furthest I had ever run was 10k. The race itself terrifies me, but I'm thrilled to be running for such an important and much needed service! Anything you are able to give to support Refuge is very gratefully received. If you'd like to wait until after the event and pledge a certain amount depending on my finish time, then that is also welcome! I'll need all the motivation I can get...[/p][p][br][/p][p]Wish me luck! :S[/p][p]Lauren x[/p][p][br][/p]
