Our co-founder Freya has decided to take on the London Marathon to raise money for Tommy's this year and we couldn't be prouder of her.
"Since we partnered with Tommy’s for the Wave of Light Candle back in 2020, I have heard so many stories of lives effected by baby loss and the devastation it leaves behind. I am running the London Marathon to raise money for a cause that helps families navigate the heartbreak and funds research into the causes and prevention of pregnancy complications, miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. Tommy’s is the most amazing charity and I’m so proud to have worked with them to raise £136,000 since 2020."
"I started my training in January and have been following the Hal Higdon training plan, which has a brilliant app - I would highly recommend. I’ve enjoyed training, some of the long runs have been painful but overall I’ve loved being out with my training partner – Bagheera, my dog."
As you can imagine, this isn't a challenge for everyone. It's a long, gruelling challenge that Freya is taking on.
"Do I feel ready? Only time will tell. I’m not doing it for a particular time, just to finish and have fun."
