The Fawcett Society is continuing Millicent Fawcett's legacy of fighting sexism and gender inequality through hard-hitting campaigns and impactful research.

In training and (hopefully) completing the race, i will also be trying to raise funds to support the charity in its work to create a society in which women and girls in all their diversity are equal and truly free to fulfil their potential creating a stronger, happier, better future for us all.

This will be my first half marathon and so i will be trying to follow a strict 10 week training plan to make sure i get across the finish line.

Your kind donation (no matter how much) will be warmly received and will help to motivate me through my rigorous training plan.

Thank you for your support and wish me luck!
