Stornoway Half Marathon
23rd September 2010
Cathy, Donnie and Marilyn are pictured above, presenting a cheque for an incredible £1971.00 to Chrisetta Mitchell, Secretary of The Leanne Fund. Included in this total is £500 matched funding from Lloyds Banking Group Foundation.
Marilyn Hanlon and Cathy Chisholm join Donnie ‘Finnacs’ MacMillan (pictured below) to run the 2010 Stornoway Half Marathon for The Leanne Fund.
Amongst record numbers of runners and in perfect running conditions, the trio all managed to complete the 13 mile course within 2 hours, to cross the finish line at Porter’s Lodge in 1:54:19, 1:50.01 and 1:59:07 respectively.
Well done guys! Thank you for choosing to support The Leanne Fund.
I’m Donnie Macmillan (AKA Finn, Finnacs, DF and various other things). At the beginning of the year I began training with some friends who were going to run the Stornoway Half Marathon for charity, and I decided I’d do the same. We’re all total novices but have been training hard and put in a lot of hours and miles. So hopefully come the day we’ll be reasonably well prepared to complete the course.
Choosing to support The Leanne Fund was easy for me as I’ve known the family all my life and have always admired the way Leanne and all her family dealt with the difficulties they endured.
If raising a few quid for the fund will help them help others to deal with living with CF that’ll be fantastic. To sponsor me, please use the following link - http://www.justgiving.com/dfmacmillan
Wish me luck.
