As you know I never do sponsored events and don't run but when I saw that the Fawcett Society were looking for people to join their team raising money to support the work of the Fawcett Society on equal pay and equal opportunities for all of us women and our daughters, sisters, nieces and granddaughters I thought what better cause to get me to participate. Luckily the race can be done walking or running so I will walk as fast as I can! I joined the Fawcett Society when I realised that 100 years on there is still so much to be done to reach equality and I don't want the next generation to be having the same challenges.
