Superfit Becky Thomas completed the Chester half marathon on Sunday 21st May in support of MedEquip4Kids.

Prior to the event, Becky said: “My Aunt, Ruth Jameson, is a trustee for MedEquip4Kids so I decided to run to support the cause that she is so passionate about. I’ve never done one before so am slightly scared, but I have done a bit of training so hopefully I’ll make it round! I’m aiming more to finish in one piece than for a fast time!”

In fact, Becky made it to the finish line in an impressive two hours 21 minutes. By setting up and promoting her Justgiving page, she’s raised a whopping £430 for the charity from her  family and friends. The funds will help MedEquip4Kids provide vital hospital equipment and facilities to benefit children’s health.

Clare Henderson, Community Fundraiser at MedEquip4Kids says: “It was very brave of Becky to take on such a difficult challenge as she’d never done a run like this before. We’d like to congratulate her on her achievement and thank her for her fantastic support of our work.”

“The switch adapted toys have been a wonderful addition to our school. Both staff and children were thrilled to have some new exciting resources. The children love the lights and movement many of these switch toys have and are highly motivated to explore and investigate how to make them work. They have been great for pupils to develop their understanding of cause and effect and we have also noticed improved concentration and engagement when using them. Often it can be difficult to find toys that are robust enough to withstand lots of heavy use AND be interesting and fun. These new resources tick all those boxes. They have made a noticeable impact on the children’s development in this area.”
