Amy Brookes runs the Manchester Marathon in aid of CRASH

Amy Brookes completed her first ever marathon in Manchester last week and with a fantastic finishing time well ahead of her target. Amy ran 26.2 miles after months of training, supported on the side lines by cheering loved ones.

Thanks to her dedicated training schedule and generosity from her family and friends Amy completed the Manchester Marathon and raised an impressive £3,000 in aid of CRASH.

CRASH can only continue helping homelessness charities and hospices thanks to Amy, and people like her, who take part in a challenge or event to raise vital funds for our projects.

‘’A huge thank you and congratulations to Amy Brookes for completing the Manchester Marathon in aid of CRASH. Amy has shown resilience and great determination whilst training for the marathon and fundraising. At CRASH, we are inspired by Amy and other supporters who take on new challenges, with the goal to help people who are homeless and children and adults receiving hospice care. A really big thank you to Amy and all those who sponsored her achievement. ‘’
