The Conservation Volunteers would like to say a huge thank you to Dora Drakopoulou who is putting herself through a gruelling 26 miles to run the London Virgin Marathon 2014 to raise much needed funds for The Conservation Volunteers.
Dora says, "My running history is so simple, I decided to become fit at 40 and took up running age 45! It's never too late. I have taken part in two half marathons and also did the original marathon course from Marathon to Athens last year in 5 hour 50 minutes – it was mostly uphill and really tough! I've been putting the local park to good use training for the London Marathon, training come rain or shine!!! I saw this saying on a poster as we were nearing the finish line in the ancient stadium in Athens, which sums it up 'Pain is temporary but pride is forever'."
Dora is hoping to raise £1,000 for TCV so please show your support and help her along the way by donating on her Virgin Money Giving page http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/TheodoraDrakopoulou
Best of luck Dora! Join in, feel good.
