Five members of the NFA Wales team have enthusiastically decided to embark on one of their biggest challenges to date by taking part in the 2013 Cardiff Half Marathon, running for a charity that has a positive impact on the lives of children and young people.
The five brave souls in question are Sabine Reuhl and Rachel Ellacott (Supervising Social Workers), Dan Xuereb (Placements Officer), Ann-Marie Davies (Team Manager) and Trish Jarrett (Regional Manager). Excluding Trish Jarrett, who will be looking to set a new personal best, this will be the team’s first attempt at taking on the gruelling, yet stunning 13.1 mile course, taking runners right past Cardiff’s most iconic landmarks, historic buildings and beautiful scenery.
The team will be running and collecting donations for an extremely worthwhile cause, CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families. CLIC Sargent provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help children and young people with cancer and their families to cope with the illness and the effect it has on family life.
We’ll keep this blog entry updated to keep you informed of the team’s intensive training progress, race day results and money raised for CLIC Sargent. If you’d like further information, please contact the NFA Cardiff office.
