Rachel’s half marathon for BAGs

Nov 15, 2019 | News

Rachel Vickers had been training for the Leicester Half Marathon on 6 October, which she was going to run to raise funds for Birstall BAGs. Unfortunately, due to a flooded route, the Leicester full and half marathons were cancelled.

This didn’t stop Rachel though. Along with friends, who had planned an alternative route, Rachel still ran on the 6 October and completed the full 13.1 miles.

Rachel managed to raise over £500 which she is donating to Birstall BAGs in memory of her dad who sadly passed away from the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma, earlier this year.

Well done Rachel – we’re very grateful to you and to everyone who sponsored you.
