Tanya Edwards to Run the London Marathon for Pilgrims Hospices

Tanya Edwards is running the 2015 Virgin London Marathon for Pilgrims Hospices,  a charity providing palliative care free of charge to people in East Kent.

Tanya, mother to Willow and wife to Simon only joined the club a few years ago with the purpose of staying fit and is now funning her first London Marathon. 

Tanya said, 'I chose Pilgrims Hospices because I truly admire all the hard work they do taking care of people who are very sick, providing much needed support for their families.  Unfortunately I have known too many friends and colleagues that have had to use the Pilgrims hospice but it's a real comfort knowing they have been so well looked after.' 

She added, 'Training has been tough, there have been good and bad times. It takes a lot of your free time up. I'm lucky to have a the best support group from my family and my running club. I've got some fantastic running buddies who have really been getting me through the long training runs.' 

Tanya took part in her first marathon, the Beachy Head Marathon, last October (see picture)  with lots of other members from the club.  She said, 'it's a day I will never forget.  The London Marathon  will be a completely different experience and I'm really looking forward to the atmosphere.' 

Everyone at the club wishes Tanya every success with her training and fundraising.
