Team story

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.[/b][/p][p][b]The Challenge:[/b][/p][p]Ever thought about running a marathon? How about eight marathons? How about eight marathons over eight consecutive days? …No?[/p][p]This team has![/p][p]The team will run approximately 220 miles from Paris to London, starting with the Paris Marathon and ending outside Buckingham Palace in the Virgin London Marathon. That equates to more than eight full marathons in eight days.[/p][p][b]Why?[/b][/p]Always a really active person, Vicky had a Gap Year after University and went rock climbing in Patagonia in February 2011. Whilst there, she had an accident – a rock fell onto her back, cutting 2 inches deep and breaking three vertebrae. Fortunately, two Doctors and an ER nurse were in the vicinity and she couldn’t have been luckier despite being in the remote location of Cochamo Valley in Chile. After a lengthy recovery period and a lot of hard work she is now fit again and only left with a scar and a good story to tell – blood, stretcher through the jungle, helicopter evacuation and a foreign hospital, what more could you ask for?! Ultimately, Vicky was lucky to survive, let alone be walking and now running. [p]In order to help those who were far less lucky than Vicky, the girls are going to fundraise for [b]Aspire [/b]and [b]Back Up[/b], charities that help those with Spinal Injuries.[/p][p][url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W0J3mDuRyw&feature=youtu.be]View our video[/url][/p][p][url=http://www.skinnylattestrikesback.com/2012/04/8-marathons-in-8-days-parislondon-run.html]Listen to our podcast[/url][/p][lt]/div[gt][p][i]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
