Team Hope Award
Lauren is competing in the Marathon Des Sables 2021, dubbed the “Toughest foot race on Earth” to raise money for Hope for Children.
Lauren trained for the race in April 2020 but this was postponed, first to April 2021 and then again to Oct 2021 - despite this Lauren, and all our MDS runners, did not give up and continued to train and fundraise. Lauren smashed her fundraising target when she raised a staggering £7,200 in one night (Nov 2019) by hosting her own gala ball, a great night was had by all!
Despite already hitting her MDS fundraising target of £8,000 Lauren continued to take on challenges and raise money!
In May 2020 she took on the Centurion challenge of 100 miles in 5 days and then in Nov 2020 another challenge to run 230 miles in 7 days! Both times appealing to her friends and family to donate to Hope for Children.
