Helen runs to help blind children
September 22, 2015

Hi, Helen here.

I ran the Bridgwater half marathon for Living Paintings. I did it to raise money on behalf of Tayen who is a young library member. I heard about Living Paintings from Tayen’s mum, Kali Gilbert, who is a Living Paintings Ambassador. Tayen is a little girl who is close to my heart. I wanted to raise money to thank Living Paintings for helping her enjoy books and reading.

Training-wise I ran regularly as well as doing Insanity classes, Zumba, Zumba toning, piyo, kettle size, and bounce classes. I carried on running, even in the rain. When the weather was really bad I did a workout DVD at home instead. So far I have raised £112.
