To say we are proud of Kath Lovell (Emergence MD) is an understatement. Not only did she cycle through the night on June 4 for over four hours, get knocked over by a fellow biker, and get back up and continue cycling, but Kath also cycled 6 km more then she needed to and then another 16km to get home. That is a total of 82 km!
Kath Lovell said: “I really enjoyed the ride, it was a brilliant experience - though I didn't much like my aching knees the day after. I have never done anything like this before and I felt a huge sense of achievement when I completed the course.
“I'm delighted and immensely thankful to those who have supported or sponsored me and I am keen that we use the money raised to support the unfunded areas of our organisation like the Arts and Social Network.”
So far a total of £550 has been raised with the promise of more and if that wasn’t enough, Kath is doing it all over again on July 31 – the Prudential Surrey 46 which as the name indicates is a 46 mile long cycle route though leafy Surrey.
So if you haven’t managed to sponsor Kath first time round, there is now another opportunity. Your generosity will enable us to continue our work to support all those affected by personality disorder.
If you are a keen runner, cyclist, walker etc, do get in touch if you feel inspired by Kath's efforts and want to undertake something similar to raise money for Emergence.
