Paul is Running the London Marathon to Raise Funds for TMOF
October 3 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm
Paul is a man of integrity and hope for a better future. His efforts are focussed on doing things to help improve our environment and for different communities to thrive. He is compassionate toward people and nature, especially taking care of his loved bees and dogs.These are just some of the ways he likes to make a difference.
Then another challenge came along that he has so kindly taken on. It not only incorporates his love for running long distances but for supporting people in need too. He has run marathons for charities before, such as the Samaritans and people with cleft lip and palate. Now, he is doing an incredible mission for the Maggie Oliver Foundation by running the London Marathon on 3rd October 2021.
“….this will be my 35th marathon, but believe me they never get any easier – especially at my age, so I need all the support I can get!”
He aims to raise funds for our national charity and increase awareness of how we support adult survivors of sexual abuse who want to move on with their lives. Victims and survivors of CSA come to The Foundation in the most desperate situations, whether from being unheard, dismissed, or ignored by organisations and professionals supposed to help them the most. Our trained and trauma-informed ambassadors provide bespoke support with whatever the individual needs, such as advocacy, helpline for emotional and mental wellbeing, and justice.
Paul has again reached out to help people in need, and we are grateful for his endeavour. Every stride that Paul makes over the 26-mile route will be monumental. Why? Because it will represent the struggle survivors encounter every day. They cope as best they can with the long-term aftermath of sexual abuse on their wellbeing and its impact on their lives.
The money raised will help us lessen the pain, anguish and isolation experienced by CSA victims and survivors. So no matter how small or large, it’s your generosity that will help to pave an easier path for individuals that have had the most difficult of lives to contend with. It will open new opportunities for their recovery and turn #PainIntoPower so that they can truly move on
