Volunteer of the Month February 2024...Stella Pritchard.
Sprint, Stride, Skip for Strode
Spring into the new year by striding for strode. Get your training into gear by finding your aim for this year. Join our team in the Virtual London Marathon.
Our team have started training but we want you to join our team. The 26.2-mile marathon can be walked, ran, or jogged. However, and wherever, you would like, you can create your own route, find one you already know or join us in the Strode Park Gardens.
Amanda Lailey, Strode Park House Home Manager, one of our marathon team, has already started her training, with 5-mile walks and increasing the distance each time.
This isn’t Amanda’s first rodeo; she has previously completed two moon walk marathons, and is keen to push herself with this challenge, to feel the rush of adrenaline when you complete a challenge.
Amanda said, “I am equal measures of terrified and excited for this challenge, but I cannot wait to get my teeth stuck into the training and challenge head all while raising money for our amazing charity”.
Our team’s advice for starting and achieving your new years fitness goal is by joining our team for the Virtual London Marathon. However, their best advice for this challenge is to “sign up and get started before it is too late”.
Download the Official TCS app to get you started. This will guide you through training programmes and help you along your journey. Running the Marathon will be a something ticked off many of our bucket lists, whilst also receiving a London Marathon Medal to commend your achievement.
Run for Strode and raise donations to support us, in continuing to provide vital care, support services and supported living opportunities for children, young people and adults with a range of disabilities.
Receiving your medal and achieving a goal, whilst knowing you have supported a local charity, makes it 10 times better.
If you haven’t taken part in a marathon before, then now is your chance. To find out more information head to our website. TCS London Marathon MyWay – Strode Park Foundation
