Throughout the past year we at Keelys have been rooting for our own Jayne Whitehouse who set the challenge to take on 10 marathons to help fund research into type one diabetes.
Jayne Whitehouse is hoping with one last push to raise over £3,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation” (JDRF), which is a charity researching to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes.
Her daughter Faith, aged 13, has had the condition since she was an infant, prompting Jayne, who is a legal secretary with us to embark on her goal, which she has labelled the 10 for 10 challenge.
With such an incredibly diverse year of weather, Arctic winter temperatures and the sunniest and hottest summer in many people’s living memories , it’s tested every ounce of Jayne’s resolve.
Through it all we at Keelys have cheered Jayne on as she has kept to a strict fitness regime.
Now she has the final hurdle of the Leicester marathon on October 14, before she can finally take things a little easier.
It is fair to say Jayne’s trials and tribulations through this challenge has been something we at Keelys have followed avidly and we really hope she can raise the extra money to meet this target for such a great cause
