A BIG Thank You to Our Educator – Harriet Greenhill

Harriet with her medals
Many thanks go to our Educator Harriet Greenhill who has recently completed a sponsored run on behalf of Life Education Centre Nottinghamshire.  In her own words …

“I decided to run 50 miles each month for three months starting on the 1st March 2019.  150 miles in total to raise money for Life Education Centre Nottinghamshire. It was tough at times and hard to find the time to squeeze in those miles but I did it. Feeling great as it’s a big achievement. A huge thank you to all those that supported me on my journey”.

At the completion of  each 50 miles, Harriet was awarded a medal .  Harriet's Medals (2)

The final total raised will be revealed when all monies have been collected.

Very well done Harriet!

With thanks from all at Life Education Centre Nottinghamshire.
