Last Sunday Steve Woodhead from Hebden Bridge ran the London Marathon in support of CAFOD. From everyone at CAFOD we’d like to say a huge thank you and congratulate you on a fantastic achievement.
Despite some unconventional training methods, centred in a pool rather than on tarmac, Steve overcame his injury to finish the iconic course in 4hrs 40 mins.
Steve has raised pledges for £2,000 thanks to the support of colleagues and especially the parishioners at the Good Shepherd Mytholmroyd and Sacred Heart Sowerby Bridge. This money will be used to support people living in poor communities around the world to help raise them from poverty.
When asked how the race went he said “I loved the race, even though it hurt! The atmosphere was great throughout the whole day”.
If you feel inspired by Steve and would like to challenge yourself whilst raising awareness of CAFOD’s work then get in touch with Leeds office to find out about the Leeds 10k on 20th July 2014.
