Hackney Half Marathon

Image:Client-Simon-hackney-halfWe are proud to have been chosen as the local charity partner for the Hackney Half Marathon for the second year running.

The event is a fantastic opportunity not only to raise vital funds, but for our clients and supporters to take on a challenge and achieve something big.

Just a few months before signing up for the Hackney Half last year, Simon was homeless. Simon tells us how training for the race gave him something to focus on during his recovery, and helped him to maintain the motivation he needed to leave homelessness behind him.

For someone like Simon, taking part in a race can be so much more than a physical challenge. It is an opportunity to regain self–confidence, which is so often damaged by homelessness.

“It was a really great atmosphere and I am proud to have done it.”
