Embarking on running The Great North Run
Karen Harrison, Group Marketing Manager at AF International, is running in The Great North Run on 7th September to raise money for AF’s chosen charity Barnardo’s. Although Karen has always tried to keep fit this is her first half marathon so she has embarked on a gruelling training programme which has been mainly before the working day begins.
Karen Harrison, “The Great North Run has always been on my tick list of things I want to achieve. I’ve watched the race on the TV for years, and always get slightly emotional at the reasons behind some of the runners, and their particular charities. I’ve visited a couple of Barnardo’s centres as AF International support the charity in the UK with a donation for every cleaning product sold, and witnessed the great work they do. I’m hoping more people as we get closer to the event dig deep and sponsor me.”
Barnardo’s believes in children regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour. Their purpose as a charity is to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children. The most important thing for Karen is to raise as much money as possible for this worthwhile cause. To find out more about the charity visit www.barnardos.org.uk.
