'GO FOR IT' POSTER

News: Fundraising

Diane Toop has set herself a challenge…or 5!!! To celebrate her 50th birthday and raise money for us.

So far, Diane has run the LONDON MARATHON – due to the horrendously hot conditions this year’s marathon was even more of an endurance test, but Diane’s determination to finish at all costs got her through it, and at a very reasonable time of 6:16:49.

Diane has also just completed a WING-WALK…this lady is really reaching for the skies for us!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Her next challenge is climbing BEN NEVIS in August, followed by A COAST-TO-COAST CYCLE in September and then, to finish off, the Bridlington HALF-MARATHON in October!!!!!!

A huge thank you from us all to Diane, and to the people who have sponsored her. If you would like to show your support, please log onto Diane’s Justgiving page or there are sponsor forms at the Centre.
