Congratulations to Holly Haywood who ran the Exeter marathon on 21st May to raise money for APP. She says:
It was a very hot day, but the course was picturesque which helped. I got a personal best of 5 hours 39 mins. All recovered now and looking into booking my next one.
Running one marathon is a huge endeavour but Holly is running 12! Here’s why:
My sister suffered with this after my nephew Leo was born and it changed our family. We had never heard of the condition before and not realised that Beth was unwell until she was not able to cope with everyday life.
We spent the first few days looking after Leo and supporting Beth, before she was admitted to the Mother and baby unit in Bornemouth where her condition gradually improved and she was allowed home.
It’s only now, nearly 3 years down the line that I don’t constantly worry about Beth. She is a tough cookie and will survive anything.
Please donate to help APP do their amazing work supporting families like mine.
So, that’s three down, nine marathons to go! Holly would definitely appreciate your support and donations to get here there.
