by | Jun 14, 2020 | News and reports

Helen Thomson and two friends succeeded yesterday in an amazing challenge in aid of the Highland Hospice.  Their fundraising total is almost at the £3500 mark!  Here’s what the Hospice folk wrote on their Facebook page:

How amazing is this?! Young athletes from Highland Elite Sports Academy Helen, Julia & Maisie have taken on the ultimate 24hr Marathon running challenge. They are now 14 hrs into their epic challenge, running through the night in the pouring rain and have already raised over £1800 to support Highland Hospice patients and their families. What stars!

The girls decided to take on this challenge to celebrate Maisie’s 15th Birthday and to raise funds for highland hospice in these challenging times. Such an incredible achievement girls, everyone is rooting for you as you continue with your challenge today!

If you see them running around Inverness today, sporting there ‘Team Highland Hospice’ t-shirts be sure to give them a cheer. They have 10 more hrs of running to go.

If anyone would like to show their support, here’s their fundraising link.
