We're incredibly excited that Mike and Alison Elder will be running the Edinburgh Half Marathon on May 29th, and have chosen to take the opportunity to support Integrate in doing so. They have a fundraising page which can be found by clicking HERE, or by clicking on any of the pictures.
Right: Mike and Alison Elder
"Hard as it may be to believe, I am planning to run the Edinburgh half marathon on Sunday 29th May ... in person! Alison and I have signed up to do the race together, which is only fair as she got me into this running lark in the first place … along with Santa, who provided the running shoes! The challenge of running 13.1094 miles without getting thrown into the 'Sweeper Bus' for being too slow definitely holds anxieties for me, especially as I've been dogged with injuries ever since my training started in January! The pain and embarrassment will be worth it, though, as we’re raising money for Integrate Scotland, which does tremendous work supporting individuals who are struggling with issues such as addiction, poverty and how to put their lives back together after being in prison."
We'd really love it if you would consider supporting them on their quest and remember, if you're a UK tax payer, tick the box that says 'Yes, claim Gift Aid' to have 25p added to every pound you donate.
