Katie Piper’s Royal Parks Half Marathon update

Lots of Virgin Money Giving fundraisers took on the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon last weekend (and you might have seen us cheering runners along by the finish line too).

The lovely Katie Piper has been keeping us up to date with her progress towards to the event last weekend and she’s been back in touch to let us know how it went:

“I did it!   After my 10k in June, I am thrilled to have completed the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday in 2 hours and 10 minutes.   I was a little nervous before as I’d not trained for two weeks, though thankfully, whilst it was a bit of a challenge to do the distance, I got round in a respectable time.

Thank you so much to all who’ve donated on my Virgin Money Giving page and sent me such lovely messages of support – your money will help The Katie Piper Foundation make a positive difference to burns survivors and I’m grateful for all you’ve donated.

Thanks also to the Royal Parks Foundation for providing me with a place.  Here’s the picture of me with my medal – so proud and happy to have done it – not showing you the picture of the enormous blister on my foot though!”
