Laura is running the Virgin ASICS London 10k this summer! We asked Laura why she decided to support Give Us Time:
“I’d love to write you something inspiring to quote me on but I’m not very good at putting things into words. In some form or another, I have always done something for various charities that are close to heart, not only to raise funds but also to raise awareness of that charity and the good it does.
“I married into the military 10 years ago, but it was only within the past 2 I was made aware of the Give Us Time charity by a military friend of mine, which came about at a time when needed. Sadly, our family holiday was cancelled a week prior to the booking due to the first lockdown. Before then though I had no idea such a charity existed, and I’m so grateful to know that this type of support is there.”
“Having originally signed up to run in last year’s event, I have already raised a bulk of my monetary target. And despite the 2020 event being cancelled I still took part in the virtual Asiscs race last year representing Give Us Time and exceeded 10k, completing my longest distance yet of 10 miles. I would still like to run this year to continue to help raise the profile of Give Us Time, I feel it’s a charity that should be so much more well known within the military community, and I’m grateful I can help to do this by partaking in a hobby that I enjoy. Military or not, and especially now, we all know the importance of family and the benefits that quality time together brings.”
