Chris Heemskerk, DPhil Candidate in Education and member of Green Templeton College, will be raising funds for the British Heart Foundation by running the Brighton Marathon on April 15th, and for Children with Cancer UK by completing the City to Summit duathlon on July 29th (half marathon + 184km bike through the Scottish Highlands + marathon over Ben Nevis in under 20h).

This will be her first marathon, first duathlon, and first ultra-distance event. 'I am slightly worried about what I have let myself in for, but I am hoping for a massive sense of achievement waiting for me beyond the finish line, and an accompanying impressive donation to make to my charities!' Chris says. She hopes to raise a total of £1500 for the two events.

College members can support her by making donations through her JustGiving page for the marathon or VirginMoneyGiving for the duathlon. Any contribution, however large or small, is much appreciated! 'It would also be great to have people to go out running and cycling with.' she adds. If you'd like to join her out on the road, please reach out!
