My story

[p]Join Charlotte Geen, Heather Allan, Nicola Goatman, Elaine Wylie and Vonnie Pella to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. We are a group of coworkers that share a passion for running and helping others. This year we will be putting our legs to the test to run the Berlin Marathon on 29th September 2019 and challenging all of you to help us reach our fundraising goal of £5,000.[/p][p]More women are surviving breast cancer now than ever before but the rate of diagnosis is still increasing. Just in the UK over 55,000 women and 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Breast Cancer Now funds nearly £25 million towards cutting-edge research to stop women from dying of breast cancer and to improve the lives of those living with it every day. [/p][p]Learn about the runners:[/p][p]Charlotte is studying to be a nurse and works part time at the MRN. The Berlin Marathon will be her 5th marathon and surely not her last! Charlotte is a seasoned runner and is always encouraging everyone else to achieve their best.[/p][p]Heather is involved in many charity events and loves supporting her community. She is new to running but that won't stop her from crushing it on race day. Her cheerful attitude will definitely help all the runners around her to stay up-beat, even at mile 23![/p][p]Nicola ran the Chicago Marathon last year and is excited to come back stronger for her second marathon. She is a consistent machine that doesn't breakdown when the going gets tough. Nic loves thinking of creative fundraising activities and will certainly come up with some great ideas this year![/p][p]Elaine is an experienced runner that is great at keeping everyone focused. She loves Mo Farah and even had the honor of running the Great North Run and Chicago Marathon in his footsteps last year! Elaine is excited to run her 3rd World Marathon Major this year in Berlin.[/p][p]Vonnie also ran her first marathon last year in Chicago. She is always finding new routes for the group to keep the weeks of training interesting. Vonnie was hesitant to sign up for Berlin but couldn't imagine missing out on all the fun![/p]
