I am fund raising for aspire to give back for all the help given to me in my recovery and I want to run this half marathon to also prove what can be done through dedication and courage to so no to a life of drugs and yes to a free and happy life
This year I shall be running the Oxford half marathon on behalf of Aspire in memory of my cousin Glen.
Aspire is a really important organisation that supports people to get back on their feet. Whether that's people who need some help to get back to work, preventing homelessness, supporting people to find training and education - it's all about enabling people to develop and overcome the barriers that have been preventing them from achieving the their life goals. I've been working with Aspire for several years, but I'm delighted that have been an employee since February this year.
Aspire has helped my best friend at a time when he needed it. Therefore, any way i can aim to give back to them I will
Great cause making a difference in Oxfordshire
I'll be running the Oxford half-marathon on on Sunday October 13th to raise money for Aspire Oxford.
I was looking to gain a place in the half-marathon when my sister told me about Aspire. Living in Bristol I see lots of homelessness and social issues such as drink and drug problems, the work that Aspire does is incredibly valuable to the individuals they help and society as a whole.
We are taking on this challenge to raise vital funds towards Aspire's work supporting homeless people
During the fight against COVID-19, the children of Oxfordshire have become aware of how lucky they are to have a home - somewhere safe and secure to isolate during this difficult time. So, what if they didn't have a home? In order to understand the struggles people face when rough sleeping, we are encouraging our children to spend one night in a tent, to raise awareness of homelessness and the fantastic work Aspire do to help those at a disadvantage, so there is No Going Back.
I have stepped up to the challenge of cycling 225 miles from London to Paris in support of Aspire. Aspire helps vulnerable people in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire by supporting them into and towards employment.All money raised will go directly towards Aspire so please give generously.Thank you!
