As an active mum of two boys and a sports massage therapist, Helen is passionate about fitness and a fervent runner. In 2000 Helen proudly achieved a life time ambition when she competed in the London Marathon. This year she has set herself a challenge a little closer to home and has entered the Torbay Half Marathon in support of Devon Air Ambulance.

Helen is training hard for the event, running three times a week and covering a distance of 9.5km each time. Determined to push herself she is aiming to beat her previous times of 2hr and 1hr 52sec. 

Helen added "I would be grateful for any support from friends, family and anyone else who would like to support me and donate to me doing this challenge for such a worthwhile cause."

Helen is hoping to raise £300 of fundraising for us at this year's Torbay Half Marathon on the 23 June 2019.

If you would like to help her reach her goal you can support her efforts on her fundraising page.
