Teresa Kay raises more than £1000 running her first marathon for Makeni

Teresa Kay confidently prepared to run her first marathon

Thousands of runners pounded the pavements and streets in and around York on 20th October for the 2019 Yorkshire Marathon. Many were running for charity, others for personal goals, each one cheered on by supportive spectators lining the route. Now in its seventh year, the event started and finished at the University of York with a mass warm-up in University Road.

Teresa Kay had travelled from Sheffield to take part and was raising funds for the Makeni Trust Fund to support Makeni’s Loreto Clinic work for mothers and babies.

“My target was £450 and, as from this morning, I’ve reached £720. I just need to get around it now!”  So with Gift Aid added in Teresa raised over £1000.
