We’re wishing the Hugh James Neurolaw team a huge ‘congratulations’ today as this weekend they completed their incredible 2,800km running challenge right on schedule!
The team were planning to run the Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday 4th October in support of the capital appeal for Horatio’s Garden Wales. However, as they saw that it was unlikely the event would be going ahead, they selflessly decided to embark on their own epic running challenge instead.
The Neurolaw team is made up of Cari, Ellice, Laura, Charlotte, Joy, Lyndsey and Rebecca, who all set themselves the phenomenal task of running the equivalent distance of Swindon to Tunisia from 1st June – 4th October. They all decided on the goal together and it’s been one that has helped them both mentally and physically throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.
Come rain or shine, members of the team have been donning their trainers and Horatio’s Garden running vests almost every day in order to complete the challenge. They’ve loved the fact that the running has helped them feel connected to the outside world throughout lockdown and equally loved that it was something they could do together, if not in person then at least in spirit!
As the Neurolaw team specialises in representing people with spinal cord and brain injuries, raising money for Horatio’s Garden Wales is something that is close to the whole team’s hearts. They understand how our new project at University Hospital Llandough will help patients and their loved ones adjust to life-changing injuries and hope that everyone will continue to support the project however they can.
Together, the eight have successfully raised a remarkable total of over £2,000, which is a testament to their commitment and the generosity of many wonderful supporters. Their JustGiving page is still open too, so if you haven’t had the chance to donate yet, you can do by simply clicking the link below.
It’s been a joy to watch Cari, Ellice, Laura, Charlotte, Joy, Lyndsey and Rebecca run with such enthusiasm in support of Horatio’s Garden and we cannot thank them enough for all that they’ve done to support people affected by spinal injury across Wales. We hope they’re all taking a well-deserved rest for the foreseeable future!
