Kate is a teacher at a school in Lewisham for children with additional educational needs. She’s passionate about people getting consistent support throughout their lives. Kate tells us about her marathon efforts:
“On Sunday 4 October 2020 I was due to be running the postponed London Marathon on behalf of Certitude London. However, due to COVID-19 it isn’t to be; the organisers have made the hard decision to postpone the marathon until October 2021. I will be running it in 2021 for Certitude but in the meantime want to continue to try and fundraise as charities rely on event such as this and have missed out on so much this year.
“So, on Sunday 4 October 2020 I will be completing the London Marathon virtually, albeit walking the distance! I will be setting off at 8.30am from the Thames Barrier, walking the Thames Path as much as possible to Lambeth Bridge, crossing the river and returning down the other side completing the distance at the O2. You can find out more about how this year’s ‘virtual’ marathon is working here.
“I teach young people and teenagers with Special Educational Needs so the work Certitude does is close to my heart and I really want to promote what they do in supporting people and their families in London.
“I will be taking plenty of photos along the route and will share them with you all after the event.
“If you can support my fundraising efforts in any way possible I would greatly appreciate it! You can contribute through my JustGiving page.”
See you at the finish line!
