Pinney Pacers – Marathon Mission Accomplished

Marathon-Newsletter
The Pinney Pacers have successfully completed the Brentwood Half Marathon in support of the South Essex branch of Motor Neurone Disease Association.

The run took place on Sunday 19th March, with the race starting at Becket Keys Church of England School in Sawyer Lane. The total route weaved through villages including Hook End, Shenfield and Doddinghurst. Even with blustery conditions on the day, the entire team managed to complete the course, with a number of members also smashing personal best times along the way.

The Pinney Pacers came in 7th out of a total of 36 teams – their personal chip times were as follows:

Nicholas Conway1:43:24
Stephen Eccles1:55:38
Alexander Pearce1:57:45
Keeley Miller2:00:36
Lee Kirby2:01:27
Lexie Jacobs2:27:18


Their fundraising target of £1,000 for our Charity of the Year, MNDA was also smashed, with £1,413 plus £284.50 in gift aid raised on their JustGiving page, and a single donation of £1,000 was also received from an extremely generous client, also with gift aid. These fantastic contributions brought their total fundraising efforts for the marathon to £2,947.50.

MND affects around 5,000 people in the UK at any one time, and there is no known cure. Degeneration of the motor neurones leads to wasting and weakness of the muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.

Pinney Pacers Update

pinneypacersmain
Pinney Pacers are now 2 weeks into their 8-week training schedule for the Brentwood Half Marathon, which they are running in support of Motor Neurone Disease Association.

This weekend saw some of the team participate in a 10k race at the Queen Elizabeth Park in Stratford as part of their preparation, and their next planned session together is a more arduous 16k run on the first weekend in March.

The Pinney Pacers are already raising funds for the MNDA, with a current running total of £295 – their aspiration is to raise £1,000 for the charity of the year, who fund care, campaigning and research to achieve a world free from Motor Neurone Disease. MND is the name given to a group of diseases affecting the motor neurones (nerve cells) in the brain and spinal cord. As the motor neurones gradually die, the muscles stop working.

MND affects around 5,000 people in the UK at any one time, and there is no known cure. Degeneration of the motor neurones leads to wasting and weakness of the muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.
