UPDATE (1st January 2016): Very unfortunately, Margaret has had to pull out of this event due to an injury. She is extremely disappointed but hopes that her many generous sponsors will allow her to carry over their sponsorship over until the spring, when she plans to undertake another 10k in aid of Cherry Lodge.
Cherry Lodge chairman, Dr Margaret Clark, will be getting sponsored fundraising off to a good start in 2016 by taking part in the Start Fitness Serpentine New Year’s Day 10k. This event, held on traffic-free paths within Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, is a big annual draw for participants and spectators keen to get some fresh air and exercise after their various Christmas festivities.
As many people know, Margaret was formerly a keen Marathon runner. Unfortunately, in 2014, a knee replacement operation brought her running career to a close but it did not stifle her enthusiasm for this excellent event in the Park. Last year she walked the course – and she plans to do the same again, while hoping to raise even more money to help fund Cherry Lodge’s much needed services.
You can sponsor Margaret by adding your name and details to an event sponsorship form, available at Howard House.
