Carol Sutton, member and Trustee of Harrow MS Therapy Centre, took part in the British 10K London Run on July 14 together with three other team mates — not only finishing in 91 minutes, but raising £1,500 in the process.
Carol, who has had MS since 2001 and became a member of the Centre a week after her diagnosis, gave us the lowdown on the day:
“Starting off at Piccadilly and finishing at the end of Whitehall coming into Trafalgar Square, it was a fabulous sightseeing route. The day was really hot but we all wanted to get round to raise money for the Centre.
“Running together with Paul [Sutton] and me were Anna West and Nishma Shah, friends of Hetal Shah — a fellow member of the Therapy Centre.
“Anna, who works with Hetal, was keen to support the Centre and despite a knee injury and asthma, still managed to complete her first ever 10K in an impressive 61 minutes! Nishma has been a good friend of Hetal’s from a young age and has supported the Centre at events in the past. She also completed the run in a fantastic time of 76 minutes!
“It was the first 10K run for Paul and me. We were sure we couldn’t run it all, but despite that we finished in 91 minutes which we were very pleased about. You can see all four of us showing off our medals at the end of the 10K, looking very pleased to have made it despite the heat!
“It was a great atmosphere and an unforgettable experience!”
