Rachel & Helen ran the Royal Parks!

H&R

Three big cheers to Rachel and Helen, our amazing Half Marathon runners! They both took part in this year’s Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 14th October taking in four of London’s stunning Royal Parks.

Despite the rain they both had an amazing day with lots of encouragement from their friends and family who were supporting them along the way!

Helen said “I did 3 hours 9 minutes (had a bad glute problem!) but very glad to make it to the end!

Rachel said “I loved it. I got quite emotional when I saw my sister at mile 9, but somehow pushed on through. I think I just got overwhelmed. The atmosphere was incredible! Thank you for the place and I’m over the moon I’ve been able to support APP in this small way.

Both Rachel & Helen raised over £1000 each for APP via their JustGiving pages, which is just fantastic and will really go a long way in helping us continue to develop our information and operate our peer support services.

You can still donate via their JustGiving pages here; Helen’s page and Rachel’s page

 All of us at APP thanks you both so much, it’s an amazing achievement and we hope you are as proud as we are! Thank You!
