In among the 40,000+ runners at this years Greater Manchester Run was our very own Helen Rowland, CEO who committed and spectacularly succeeded in completing the 10k run. She had previously completed the run a just a few years ago when she was 18yrs! but decided to take the challenge again. Training started in January this year when it was a struggle to reach the end of the road but come May, she was regularly running 5k + most evenings around Dovestones, a local beauty spot in Saddleworth. She was joined on her evening runs by her ‘coach’ Thomas, her 10yr old son who provided encouragement as he cycled the distance with her. In total she raised £660 for Diabetes UK. A massive well done from everyone at Focus-Trust!
