My story

[p]Can’t thank everyone enough for all your unbelievable support and kind donations to Archway. It is hugely appreciated and definitely kept me going when the legs were getting tired!! πŸƒπŸΎ?β™‚?πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ—[/p][p]First ultramarathon βœ… - 10th July, 50k along the south coast of Devon 🌦[/p][p]β€”β€”β€”[/p][p]Hi [/p][p][br][/p][p]My name is Raj, I am training to become a GP in Oxford, and doing my first ultramarathon for [b]The Archway Foundation[/b]. It is a 50km(!) run along the [url=https://www.windingpaths.uk/exe-estuary-summer/]Exe Estuary[/url] in Devon, on the 10th of July 2021. Of the many terrible consequences of the pandemic, this last year has emphasised the importance of supporting individuals suffering from loneliness and social isolation. [/p][p]Since 1982, Archway has been lifting adults from loneliness in Oxfordshire, through supportive social groups, subsidised transport and one-to-one visiting. Volunteering with them at university (a while ago now!), I saw the difference this makes to people’s lives. Despite COVID restrictions, Archway continues to reach, listen to and support over 300 adults - many of whom even in 'normal times' face additional physical and mental health, social and financial challenges. [/p][p]By running, and with your support, I am hoping to raise Β£1500 to help them reach all those needing their services. [/p][p][b]MY RUNNING EXPERIENCE[/b] πŸƒπŸΎ - I did my first (and only!) marathon in 2018 in 3h47min. Since then I have set my personal best half-marathon time (1h38min). Now I want to challenge myself to some trail running![/p][p][b]FOR TRAINING UPDATES[/b] πŸ’ͺ🏾 - follow me on instagram ([url=https://www.instagram.com/rajan_patel23/]@rajan_patel23[/url])[/p][p][b]FOR MORE INFO ABOUT ARCHWAY[/b] πŸŽ— - see their website ([url=https://archwayfoundation.org.uk][u]https://archwayfoundation.org.uk[/u][/url][u])[/u] or like on Facebook ([url=https://www.facebook.com/The-Archway-Foundation-UK-164973336867267/]The Archway Foundation, UK[/url])[/p][p][br][/p][p][b]#LetsTalkLoneliness[i] [/i][/b]πŸ’¬[/p]
