Annabel Runs Half Marathon for LivLife
Sunday, 24 February 2013
Bolton School Sixth Form student Annabel Ault has raised almost £900 for the LivLife charity by running the Great North West Half Marathon.
After months of gruelling training throughout the winter, Annabel took part in her first ever half marathon and ran over 13 miles in a fantastic 2 hours and 11 minutes.
As part of the school group that visited Tanzania in 2011, Annabel has seen first-hand, the powerful impact that the Education Centre is having on people’s lives. She said: “I have amazing memories of my time in Tanzania, and after having been inspired by students and teachers alike at the Meserani Centre, I really wanted to do my bit to try and help fund the amazing work that LivLife do.”
LivLife said: “We can’t thank her enough for the hard work she has put in to support us, which also includes baking cakes for everyone who sponsored her! It is only with the inspiring and creative efforts of our dedicated supporters that the work we do in Tanzania can continue, so thank you to Annabel and to everyone who is helping to keep our projects running."
A Bolton School fundraiser in July generated £11,240 for LivLife to provide support for the ongoing projects in Tanzania. While there were a number of activities pupils took part in, the centrepiece of the main day revolved around a simultaneous Maasai dance between pupils of Bolton school and students in Tanzania.
