Runner Stories: Lucy Leeming & the Salford 10k!
Running attracts people from all walks of life, running for all sorts of different reasons.
This is a quick message from Lucy, who is running the Salford 10K this year. Lucy works for St Anne’s Hospice, so she understands just how important charities like The Running Bee Foundation are in offering support to those in need.
Here’s what she had to say:
“I am taking part in the Salford 10k this year as part of a few challenges to try and keep myself fit! I find if I don’t enter events like this I won’t stay fit, so it helps me to ensure I do some exercise!
This is my first year running the Salford 10k, I’m really excited about it as I’ve heard it’s a great atmosphere and it’s in my neighbourhood so that will be cool!
I am running for St Ann’s Hospice – a charity which cares for thousands of people with life-limiting illnesses every year. The hospice provides a free service to patients, carers and their loved ones from three sites in Greater Manchester, and they also support patients in the local community in their own homes. I have been working for the hospice since October last year and cannot begin to explain how much of an organisation it is. I am very proud to be part of #teamstanns!
It’s fantastic that the Salford 10k supports The Running Bee Foundation – it means even more people in local communities are supported. I think it’s what makes this event so special – the fact that profits from running places go to such an important cause.”
