Huddersfield marathon runners Katie Sykes and Helen Care took part in the 2012 Virgin London Marathon, running for a cause close to all our hearts, the Down’s Syndrome Association. Katie’s son Harry has Down Syndrome and he and his friends were the reason behind this challenge. Katie said ‘The continuing support shown by the hospital and local groups after having the diagnosis has spurred me on to give something back in return for all we have received. I have never run a marathon, so the effort and dedication will hopefully mirror the effort and dedication of those now around us, to which I am eternally grateful.’
So far the total raised by Katie & Helen stands at over £8000, it’s not too late to donate to this fantastic cause and to congratulate both Katie and Helen for their incredible effort, just click the link below –
Katie would like to thank everyone for their support ….and cash!!
