I got involved in a Wolf Run last year and some friends of mine thought it would be a good idea to try for the Alpha Wolf medal in 2017. To receive the medal, you have to do 4 wolf runs in 1 year, so I signed up and set my sights on achieving 4 within the year.

For one reason or another, my friends didn’t sign up in time and I’ve ended up doing the 4 runs as a lone wolf : )

I’ve only got into running last year due to my friends encouraging me to do a mud run and wolf run, I had never ran properly before but I have been doing the odd bits of fitness over the past 2 years as a way of helping cope with life’s daily stresses. So far I have completed 1 run and have another 3 to go so wish me luck!

I look forward to my achievements and receiving my medal and am happy to encourage others to consider fostering.

Alison WilliamsAlison, Recruitment Co-ordinator,  from our Midlands team has been fundraising again. Alison hosted a ladies night to raise money for in support of the Brain Tumour Charity in support of her friend, Charlotte, 25, who has been living with terminal brain cancer for 3 years.

The event was attended by local ladies, and they enjoyed a raffle, auction and pop up shops. On the night they raised £111, Capstone will be matching the amount raised. Charlotte who has been named as a Young Ambassador for the Brain Tumour Charity, said: “I am very grateful to everyone for their support.”

 

Alison said: “I was happy to support Charl with fundraising and raising awareness, she has now been named a young ambassador for the Brain Tumour Charity and I am extremely proud of her and others that continue to keep positive and strive to achieve more for themselves and others in a similar situation. Helping others and remaining positive when faced with negative situations/circumstances is important, together we achieve more than alone.”
