This April, local vet and former Stroud High pupil Carolyne Crowe, from Horsley in Gloucestershire, will tackle 10 marathons in 10 days to raise money for equine welfare charity Brooke – Action.
Joined by her friend and fellow vet Brian Faulkner, Carolyne’s fundraising challenge will see her running around the country, travelling over the Severn Bridge and through Gloucestershire, before finishing with the famous London Marathon.
Carolyne’s goal is to raise £10,000 for Brooke – Action, a charity close to her heart. The Brooke is an international charity aimed at protecting and improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules, which provide people in the developing world the chance to work their way out of poverty.
Speaking of the challenge, Carolyne said: ‘I will be 40 in 2017 and I wanted a big challenge and this seemed as good as any! I also believe in creating stories to tell my grandchildren and I’m sure a few good ones will come from this adventure.
‘Brooke seemed like an obvious fit in that I have always owned horses myself and have worked in equine practice. I like the ethos behind Brooke in that by helping horses, mules and donkeys in developing countries, you are also helping to support the communities that depend on them for their livelihoods.’
Scheduled to begin their gruelling 260-mile journey in Wahilgoe, Northern Scotland on Friday 14 April 2017, Carolyne and Brian’s Ten2London fundraising scheme is already gathering momentum, securing a number of sponsorships to ensure that the maximum amount of funds go to support Brooke.
