Team Wirral Hospice are running the Wirral Half Marathon on Sun 12 Oct in aid of Wirral Hospice St John’s. The team is made up of experienced runners and first timers, all with the aim of crossing the finish line no matter what as a matter of pride… Not a chance of anyone beating Mo Farah’s incredible time in the Great North Run this weekend!
Our team is made up of Hayley, Kerry, Carl, Teresa and Lynne:
Hayley and Kerry are the events team at the Hospice, so the shoes will be firmly on the other feet as they cross the start and (hopefully!) finish lines!
Carl, our Hospice’s lottery admin co-ordinator, is adamant that he will be in good shape come race day. He’s done a lot of walking in preparation and the odd bit of running!
Teresa, our Head of Fundraising at the Hospice, was an ok runner previously. But she is (very) slowly getting back into her stride after having a baby and turning 40 in the last 14 months.
Lynne is a Hospice supporter and has been ‘volunteered’ into running by Hayley. She’s sportingly going along with it all despite being quite nervous!
Please sponsor the team if you are able to. Even £5 can help make a big difference to our Hospice’s work. And all those £5 can really add up!
