Three amazing ladies run for Get Kids Going!

Alison Read Paris


Last weekend, some of the Get Kids Going! fundraising team took to the streets of Paris race in the 2015 Paris Half Marathon.


Three friends, Alison Read, Linda Katesmark and Joanne Kingran in aid of Get Kids Going! and after the event they got in touch with us to tell us how much they had enjoyed the race.


Alison said, “Myself and two of my great friends Linda Katesmark and Joanne King have just got home after running the Paris half marathon.


“We are all 40+ and ran it for the Get Kids Going! charity. We raised over a £1,000 and it's still coming in too!


“The amazing thing was, Linda was injured with a torn muscle and was very hit and miss if she was even going to finish but she did! I had an absolute stinking cold and felt awful and Joanne was just brilliant as she has been recovering from throat cancer and a cancerous Tumour on her under foot and has been clear for a year not that she likes to talk about it! So we are very proud of her!

“We had an amazing weekend the energy and support was outstanding from the French every corner we turned the music was brilliant.


“We are sad now that all the training and planning has finished! We are so looking forward to booking our next event very soon for this great charity. We will be heading back to Paris next year!


We are so glad you enjoyed it and thank you for running for Get Kids Going! you all did fantastic!
