We are delighted to reveal our 2018 London Marathon runner is….. the fabulous, and very brave Kate Heywood!!
Kate has a real connection with OKMT through her daughter who has attended our music classes and younger OK Youth Choir on Saturday mornings. The passion for the work we do is reflected in Kate’s desire to raise £2,500 which will pay for 25 children and young people to attend our inclusive choir for 2 terms, giving them the opportunity to find their voice and gain the confidence to sing with others.
Kate is far from being an elite runner, so taking on the gruelling 26.2 mile distance on 22nd April will be a huge challenge for Kate and one that we hope all of our OKMT supporters will get behind.
Not content with just running the marathon for us, Kate has very kindly started keeping a little diary to give our supporters an insight into her journey from ‘coach potato’ to ‘a proper runner’. CLICK HERE to follow Kate’s journey and please do visit her fundraising page to pledge your support!
