Virgin London Marathon

Meet Emma 🏃‍♀️
Emma is our Development Coordinator

Many of you are watching Emma’s Marathon journey, as she transitions from couch potato to Marathon Queen in order to:
– explore health and nutrition
– develop her skills, competence and understanding of physical, emotional and mental wellness
– face challenges that once seemed completely unrealistic… and
– raise some much needed funds to support the work of Headway Derby.

Well a few weeks ago Emma took her journey of discovery to the next level by completing her first ever Half Marathon in Leicestershire.

For those of us who know this determined young woman, this achievement is no surprise… Emma on the other hand is absolutely overwhelmed by the commitment, dedication and sheer bloodymindedness she’s found in order to do this wonderful thing ðŸ’œ

Thank you to everyone who cheers Emma along, likes and shares her posts, donates £, provides professional support and training… and generally sends positive energy in her direction.

Emma, we are very proud to be part of this fabulous challenge ðŸ‘£

Well Done on completing your first Half Marathon and good luck with the final phases of your Virgin London Marathon preparation – we can’t wait to cheer you along!
