I am a Ward Clerk based in Maternity services at Pinderfields Hospital. I love my job and wanted to give something back to my workplaces charity whilst also achieving a personal goal of running my first half marathon.
Keen to improve my fitness and find myself a new interest, I first started started running a couple of years ago with the help of the NHS Couch to 5K app, being barely able to run to the end of the street at the time! I now run a couple of times a week and have also participated in a few 10K's. However, it's not something that comes easy to me and running 13.1 mile is going to be a real challenge for me. I'm working really hard putting the training in so I can go the distance and although I aren't going to be beating any record times ;-) I would be more than delighted to just be able to run the whole course without stopping! Fingers crossed!
Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust provides Hospital & Community Healthcare services in Wakefield, Pontefract & Dewsbury. Our Charitable aim is to enhance services provided by the Trust for the benefit of patients or towards the benefit of staff, which will result in improved patient care.
So please, support me in supporting this wonderful charity. Even the smallest contributions are greatly appreciated and really make a difference!
