Trainee solicitor runs her first ½ marathon for the Lucy Faithfull Foundation and Stop it Now!

A trainee solicitor with Venters Solicitors ran the Reading half marathon in March to raise funds for the Lucy Faithfull Foundation and Stop it Now!

As a novice runner, Lauren Harris only signed up for the event in January and at that time had not run more than seven miles. She trained hard and shortly before the big day she ran 11.5 miles in under two hours. Not wanting to take the sense of achievement away on the day, she did not train up to the 13 miles and went on to complete the 13 mile event in two hours 22 minutes. Lauren says she found the event challenging, but thinking about the work the Foundation does pulled her through.

Lauren had hoped to raise £300 but has doubled her target raising an amazing £600 for the child protection charity. Lauren said: “I chose to run for the Lucy Faithfull Foundation as child protection is the area of law I’ve had most exposure to at Venters Solicitors.”

Well done Lauren from everyone at The Foundation and Stop it Now!
