Running for Beating bowel Cancer, Katie raised over £1100 through JustGiving.com, achieving 138% of her target. Katie managed to complete the full distance (26.2 miles) in an astonishing 4hrs 6 minutes.
Beating Bowel Cancer is a charity providing support for those with bowel cancer, and campaigning for high quality treatment for patients.
Katie commented,“My family as a whole have been strongly affected by this terrible disease and as a relatively small charity, I was proud to support Beating Bowel Cancer. I was overwhelmed by the support and amount raised by friends and family – For this I thank you all and look forward to a world where we can beat cancer for good.”
Commercial Director, Nick Barber added,“Congratulations to Katie from everyone at Broadway we are all so proud of you. The great time in which you completed the Marathon, represents the hours of pain staking training and dedication you have put in over the past 2 years. Raising over £1100 for bowel cancer research is a great achievement and will help cure this awful disease quicker so less families have to suffer its consequences. Thanks once again from us all at Broadway”
