CDLF flying the flag at Great North Run 2022
The foundation was delighted to be approached by Sue Lake of White Rose Books, Thirsk. She wanted to run this years Great North Run to fundraise for CDLF.
Sue wrote “Why has bookselling prepared me for a Half Marathon
Endurance – long periods of standing
Mental Strength – long periods with the public
Self Belief – long periods acting like you know what you are doing
Hydration – there’s water in Americano’s
Nutrition – familiar snacking on dry biscuits
Strength Training – Books are heavy
Flexibility – stretching & reaching into the pesky broom cupboard
Pace yourself 0 its a 9 hour shift, don’t give all you’ve got on your 1st customer
Finding your Why – Books are good for you, me everyone. As is exercise
That’s me prepped then. Wish me luck”
Sue didn’t just run the Great North Run she smashed it! Over £1000.00 raised so far CDLF we couldn’t thank you enough!
