We are very proud to report that Jade from Heathcotes Wakefield took on the Race for Life at Pontefract Park recently.

When Jade signed up to the event she bravely chose the 10k distance and started going about her training.  Even better Rachel, one of the support workers at Heathcotes Wakefield, kindly offered to accompany Jade on the run and made sure she took herself to the gym to do some training so she could keep up with Jade!

On the day it took 1 hour 39 minutes for Jade and Rachel to complete the route cheered on by their friends.  Amelia Hallas, Regional Manager said, "It was a great afternoon and Team Wakefield did fantastically.  We are so proud of Jade and big thanks to Rachel for supporting Jade on the route".  The running bug should now be spreading through Heathcotes Wakefield as Jade has challenged staff to take part in Race for Life in 2015!
