A massive congratulations to our fabulous fundraiser, Lauren, for completing the Run Plymouth 10k in 1 hour and 7 minutes and raising £743 - smashing her goal!

A real achievement that took weeks of training and planning. Through rain and shine over the past few months, Lauren has been hitting the pavement and training hard to get 10K ready! Despite grappling with asthma, she courageously pushed herself to increase her distance each training session as she set her sights on conquering the 10K within 1 hour and 10 minutes!

Why did Lauren take on this challenge?

“Having volunteered at Hearts Together, I have seen how this charity is a lifeline for many families needing to be near the hospital in difficult circumstances. I've seen the difference it makes and want to do my bit to support them so they can continue to help others.

Lauren was fantastic at getting her local community behind her every step of the way, rallying friends, teachers, and family to support her and help her exceed her fundraising target. With everyone's help, Lauren absolutely smashed her fundraising target of £400, reaching an incredible £743! Lauren has chosen to dedicate her funds raised towards the Big Build Project. We're aiming to expand our services, from offering bespoke apartments for extended stays to implementing well-being community support programs for those dealing with complex health challenges. Each donation towards this ambitious project brings us one step closer to achieving our end goal.

Fundraisers like this make a real difference, one stride at a time.
