Brooke, Leonie and Daytona are running the Manchester Marathon (yes that’s 26.4 miles) on Sunday 7thApril 19!
We are doing this to raise money for a month long volunteering trip to Costa Rica that Brooke is leading. She is taking 9 St Benedict’s students over to rural communities in Costa Rica where they will help to build a primary school. This trip is a once in a lifetime chance for the students to experience what life is like in Costa Rica on a day-to-day basis, get to grips with the problems communities are facing and actively become part of the solution. All students have been required to fundraise over £4000 each for the past two years and we are now on the home stretch.
This is the final fundraiser before they depart on July 8th for a month!
Please be generous and donate if you can – we are also doing the Northumberland Run Nation half marathon on March 17th as part of our training plan.
Wish us luck and thank you in advance,
Brooke, Daytona & Leonie
