My story

[p]PAC-UK exists to improve the lives of families and individuals affected by adoption and other forms of permanence by providing access to a range of individually tailored services and appropriate support depending on need.  In addition we aim to increase the awareness and knowledge of professionals and the general public.[/p][p]There were some excellent results from the PAC-UK team in 2016, with Juho Lahdenpera leading the pack and beating his [b][url=http://www.pac-uk.org/team-pac-uk-raises-over-1250-at-2015-regents-park-10k/]previous time[/url][/b], completing the race in 40:47 and placing 13[sup]th[/sup] overall.[/p][p]The remaining team mates put in a sterling effort (full results below):[/p][p]13[sup]th[/sup] – Juho Lahdenpera – 00.40.47[lt]br /[gt]91[sup]st[/sup] – Louis Hurrey – 00.49.49[lt]br /[gt]111[sup]th[/sup] – Paul Fretten – 00.51.24[lt]br /[gt]112[sup]th[/sup] – Lucy Richardson – 00.51.25[lt]br /[gt]113[sup]th[/sup] – Amy Fretten – 00.51.25[lt]br /[gt]131[sup]st[/sup] – Jesus Melero – 00.53.34[lt]br /[gt]132[sup]nd[/sup] – Estefania Rubio – 00.53.35[lt]br /[gt]142[sup]nd[/sup] – Timothy Taylor – 00.53.47[lt]br /[gt]143[sup]rd[/sup] – Rebecca Wilkins – 00.53.47[lt]br /[gt]217[sup]th[/sup] – Kamil Szarota – 00.58.38[lt]br /[gt]227[sup]th[/sup] – Michelle Evans – 01.00.21[lt]br /[gt]275[sup]th[/sup] – Josie Gradwell – 01.04.53[/p][p]PAC-UK service user and team member Michelle Evans said: [i]“PAC-UK has had such a great impact on my life, that I decided to return the favour in the hope of raising money for the team and support people just like me!"[/i][/p][p][i]“I trained very hard for my run to ensure I managed the 10K in an hour, and despite facing injury during training I managed to run the race in 60 minute and 28 seconds. The weather was incredible on the day and it was so lovely to do a race in one of London's iconic parks, and passing the zoo was a highlight of mine; it is great encouragement when you have a camel staring at you mid race.[/i][/p][p][i]“The race was perfectly organised with great refreshments and I was also impressed at the support from Timpsons (I am aware that Mr Timpson and his wife are big adoption supporters). My ankle is in recovery, but I am so happy to have the t-shirt and medal to commemorate our achievement.”[/i][/p]
