UPDATE FROM KAREN HILL – RUNNER FOR THE VIRGIN LONDON MARATHON AND FROM THE WISH TREE CHARITY
May 4, 2020
Hi, firstly I would like to thank everyone for their support and generosity.
Unfortunately, I am withdrawing from the London Marathon and will not be taking up my deferred place for the October 2020 event. It was a very difficult decision, as I was on target with my training plan and having reached 15 miles, I really felt I could do this!!!! Sadly, due to other commitments I am unable to defer the place and my training until the Autumn. If you have already sponsored me, thank you. Virgin Money have already sent the sponsorship money to the Wish Tree; but if you would like a refund then please contact Alison Moss by email on firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will arrange it for you.
This has been a very emotional and tough journey for me and I would like to thank you all so much for your support.
The Wish Tree Charity appreciate what a tough decision this has been for Karen. It has been both a physical and emotional rollercoaster for her and we would like to personally give our thanks and appreciation for all her hard work and training. No one could have predicted the current situation and that the Marathon would have been cancelled and that she would have to make this decision. We would like to wish Karen all the very best for the future.
The Wish Tree Charity are hoping to be able to fill this space in October 2020 or defer to April 2021. We have a prospective runner in line to take on this challenge for us – so watch this space!!
Hope you are all managing to keep safe and well and please remember we are here to help and have a list of volunteers eager to help. So please do not hesitate to get in contact with Ali Moss 07799 607320, Tracy Wells 07976 867910 or Barbara Davies 07870185569.
