A marathon success

We are delighted to announce that one of our lovely trustees, Cathy Sinclair, ran the Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April in under 5 hours. Cathy has raised a fantastic £1300 and more is coming in.

Cathy tells us how this helped: Having raised over £1300 for the charity was an incredible motivator on the day. Nothing prepares you for the highs and the lows of the day itself, and keeping my ‘reason to run’ firmly in mind helped through some very tough times….. More importantly than any of that, I raised funds and awareness for young people with caring responsibilities. A marathon is huge but not as huge as the challenges and responsibilities which many young people are dealing with every single day. Providing care when you are still learning about life yourself is something to be exceptionally proud of. For full details, read Cathy’s blog

A huge thank you to Cathy from everyone at Sheffield Young Carers . If you would like to help Cathy reach an even more impressive total, please visit her fundraising page today.
