Hi everyone,

On Sunday 6th November I will be undertaking the challenge of running my first half marathon, the Run UK Richmond Half Marathon!

I am running in support of the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, a pioneering personal safety charity which does crucial work within the Violence Against Women & Girls sector to combat stalking, harassment, and trains people in helping them improve their own personal safety.

As a special note, I will be running this race in memory of Sarah Everard, whose life was so tragically taken in March 2021. Sarah's story touched me greatly at the time, and continues to do so a year and a half on. I will be running this race for Sarah, for women everywhere, and for the amazing women I am lucky enough to know and love.

I very much appreciate your support, thank you to everyone who has encouraged me so far with this challenge, it means a great deal.

Laura xx
