After many months of training, Craig , Ian, John, Jade, Sarah & Theresa all took part in the London Royal Parks Half Marathon, to raise money for the Children s Rudham Ward in Kings
Lynn. The Half Marathon went very well, we all crossed the finish line in under 3 hours. The weather was fantastic and having friends and family with us made the event a wonderful experience. I felt a mixture of emotions whilst running, I’d never experienced before. A little bizarre, it gave me a lot of time to think through many conundrums, most of which came back to why we were there. It was a startling reminder of just how many other peoples life’s are affected by illnesses. Yet you could see the sheer determination shine through all of them.

Running Vest Logo Competition
Prior to the children’s summer half term break, I invited the Normans Primary School in Northwold to take part in designing a logo for our running vests. The winner of the chosen logo
was picked before the children went on their summer break to give us enough time to have the vests printed before the Half Marathon. Presentation took place on Friday 4th October at 3PM. The winner was Toby Rickard 7 Years old from Northwold. (logo top right of page)
The prize for the winner of the logo competition is as follows:
• Complimentary tickets to visit Church Farm at Stowbardolph, Downham Market. (2 Adults & 2 Children) These tickets were half sponsored by the Church Farm at Stowbardolph.
• 1 Junior size T Shirt with the logo printed (Mini version of the running vests).
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped support us over the last few months, training has been hard and not always at convenient at times, but at least we all completed the course, despite several injuries. Overall the day was a great success.
