April 2018 -Fundraising Update

On the 22nd April 2018, Ali, a volunteer with our Board of Directors will be running the London Marathon raising funds for Birthlink. Ali has set a time of 4 hours and we wish him all the best. Hopefully the weather will hold for pleasant conditions, not like what he has experienced since his training started on Christmas day 2017 !!        Training

26/4/18 Wow,  absolutely amazing time for Ali, 3 hours, 57 minutes, 56 seconds & in the heat too. A huge thanks to Ali from us all for running the marathon on our behalf, his fundraising page will remain open until 22nd July.  As at 18th May has exceeded his target of £500 by £283.75, keep them coming….


In May , Aaron a volunteer, is running another marathon raising funds for Birthlink. Following his success at the Edinburgh marathon last year, on our behalf, Aaron has stepped up the ‘pace’ and will be running a marathon in Lake Windemere involving lots of hills in comparison to the flat of Edinburgh.

Sunday 20 May Aaron ran the Brathay ASICS marathon around lake Windermere in 4hrs 49 mins 32 seconds. Running from the tip to toe of lake Windermere (near Ambleside) Aaron and 850 others ran along the lakeside road in gorgeous countryside, then back up to the start point around the other side of the lake.  Lots of hills from start to finish so Aaron’s hill training in preparation paid off!!

12/10/18 Laura, a supporter of our services is running the Supernova Kelpies 5k night time event on 9th November 2018. Thankfully the promoter will be providing Laura with a LED night light!!
