Ali and Jodie’s final practice run before the Sierra Leone marathon!

Jodie Mason, Marketing Coordinator and Alison Rickwood, Social Worker, will be doing a pre-marathon practice run at the beginning of May across Avon Beach between 16-18 miles. If you are interested in coming along for support and for a bbq afterwards on the beach, email alison.rickwood@capstonefostercare.co.uk or jodie.mason@capstonefostercare.co.uk for more information.

Ali Rickwood says:

As it is my 40th year on this planet; I wanted to do something special to celebrate; why not complete my first marathon!! And run it somewhere special!

When I read about Street Child, I knew that I had found something special. I was inspired by the work of Street Child and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in the Sierra Leone Marathon 2018. The money raised on my page will go towards providing a child with education, school uniform as well as training teachers. For example, a donation of £30 is enough to send a child to school for a year, or a £50 donation can supply a whole school with their teaching resources for a year.

Please help us help them by giving whatever you can:

A massive Thank you to Capstone for supporting me to do this. Keep up to date with my training and photos on my Just Giving page and the Capstone website with my weekly blogs!.

If any of you have some ideas about how I can raise more money before I head out to Sierra Leone, that would be amazing, please do email or call me – I would welcome any support!!

I look forward to hearing from you 😊”
