Thank you so much to Katie Allan who ran the Edinburgh Half Marathon and Gillian Hogarth who ran the Edinburgh 10Km both for Ravelrig RDA.
Their hard work and dedication they showed in the run up to the event, training in the terrible weather we have had really paid off and they both thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
It was such a challenge but I am so glad I did it. I have a new found love so I have already signed myself up to do the Scottish half in September.
I just want to say how much fun I had on the day and I am so glad I raised money for such an amazing charity. My sister gets so much pleasure from riding the horses at Ravelrig. Her face lights up and she has a big smile on her face when riding, especially when she is able to trot. It was the only charity I could do the run for because I know how much it means to Emma and my family.
I am celebrating my 50th with a party that evening so I have asked that people sponsor me rather than gifts. I put a moderate target down but hope to raise considerably more. Our daughter, Anna very much enjoys helping at the Balerno RDA and we are delighted that she is training to be an instructor. She is going to Edinburgh university in September to study veterinary medicine so will be able to continue supporting such a great cause.
They have managed to raise an amazingly, wonderful amount of over £2,700 for Ravelrig. We are so grateful to them both and if anyone wants to set themselves a challenge and raise money for Ravelrig in the process, let us know.
