'Only Run If You're Being Chased!'

I've worked for SYA for 12 years this year. From starting off as a youth worker to moving all the way to the position of CEO, this charity has literally been my life.
Over the years I have seen vulnerable children and young people grow, and become some of the best adults I know. I wouldn't be the person I am without all of these amazing humans and their families, all of whom face difficult challenges every day.
I figured that whilst I work tirelessly to keep this small charity running from my desk, I might take the concept LITERALLY and keep the charity running by.. well.. running.
I ALWAYS used to say that "you should only run if you're being chased"... well I guess people will be behind me so that's sorta like being chased?
This is my first Marathon. I'm PETRIFIED, but after my colleague Ross did the three Peaks challenge for SYA last year, I figured I needed to do something pretty big too. I'm secretly insanely competitive!
The money raised will pay for a bunch of us SYA staff to take young people with disabilities and mental health issues on an epic Summer residential, giving them an unforgettable adventure and giving their parents and carers some well deserved respite for a long weekend. These young people need constant support and supervision, which is staff heavy and expensive, and look, SYA is a small local grass roots charity, that relies HEAVILY on fundraising and grants from lovely funders who I have to beg for money every 9 months.
Any support towards my goal would be utterly grand. Come down and support me on the day- I'll be the one looking like she is being chased!!
Big Love xx

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
