Meet Dawn

Taking on two events for Scope in one year is a big challenge but Dawn has tackled it head on.

I’m raising money for Scope this year by running the Bath Half Marathon on 12 March and London Marathon on 23 April.

The fundraising is coming along well so far. I’ve had lots of contributions from friends and family but also my work colleagues have really helped by giving generous contributions and helping me with a Valentine’s day cake sale. This raised a massive £365!

I also have a raffle planned and possibly an underground collection day for the London Marathon. I’m fortunate that my company will be matching both these events up to £500 which is a real help to smashing my targets!

As for the training, it’ll be my first marathon and I’ve had some real ups and downs with my training runs as everyone no doubt does. But I’m now up to 18 miles so just a few more weeks increasing and I’ll be as ready as I can be for the big day!
