The Running Season Is Back!
She took a little break but she’s back at it again, emptying our pockets and raising money for charity. Our Accounts Manager Julia Jones has got back into her rhythm and is once again completing a number of different races to raise funds for a number of causes she holds close to her heart.
Last year Julia managed to feature in four events over the course of the year racing in both 5K and 10K Race for Life events along with the Race for Life 5K Muddy Race and the Black Country 5K race for the Mary Stevens Hospice.
After completing four races last year she’s decided to up the ante on herself with the 10K cross country for the Stroke Association and a Half Marathon for the British Heart Foundation, with another Half Marathon on Sunday the 24th of this month for the Addison’s Self-Help Group still to come. With £610 raised so far she’s already made a blistering start to the year.
With a 10K race planned for later in the year again for the Addison’s Self-Help Group, a rare condition her husband Phillip suffers from which affects less than 8000 people, a 5K in support of Race for Life along with the Mary Stevens 5K for the second year running and finally another Race for Life 5K Muddy Race, ‘Team Turtle’ as she calls herself is well on course to complete 7 events before the year ends.
Everyone at 5 Star continues to be very proud of her achievements and we offer her all of our support.
