Our Joggers Journey colleague winners

Rob Clark

Rob's latest update:

Just four weeks to go until my first ever marathon! 

My training is going well. I decided to follow the IMPROVERS Plan from the London Marathon website, four runs per week for 16 weeks. I'm up to 18 miles now (week 12).

Got my Huntingdon's Disease Association running top through, and just about managed to iron my name on straight!

Charity running for: Huntingdon's Disease Association

Fundraising link: Just Giving

Rob's story:

My extended family are affected by Huntingdon's Disease. The bravery shown by them in the face of such a cruel illness is truly inspirational. There is currently no cure, but HDA do amazing work in supporting the families of those who have it.

Abby Hutchins

Charity running for: Parkinson's UK

Fundraising link: TCS London Marathon

Abby's story:

I have always been into my running. However, I have never truly pushed myself. Until I got a place into the London Marathon. 2022 marks the 8-year anniversary of my Grandad passing. Before he left us, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2000. It wasn't until 2012 it really started to take over his body. He was a massive Golf fan; it was his passion. But unfortunately, due to Parkinson’s he had to stop playing, still attending for the interaction with his friends out on the buggy.

So, with Parkinson’s being a charity close to home it only seemed right to pick them and run for them and for Grandad. I want to make him proud. He may be gone but never forgotten. You are always in our hearts.

Sarah Arnold

Charity running for: Tommy's

Fundraising link: Just Giving

Sarah's story:

I am running this for Tommy's for personal reasons having suffered three miscarriages previously, and also for a colleague at our centre whose baby was born sleeping.

I am also running the London Landmarks half marathon in April for the same charity.
