Women's Aid Leicestershire Limited (WALL) provides a specialist support service for women and their children who have been affected by domestic abuse or violence. They run services in Leicestershire and Rutland, including a shelter for women and children.

No woman or child should live in fear of violence. It terrifies me that a woman wishing to leave an abusive home, could do so, without any available support. This is why I am running Leicester Half-Marathon for Women’s Aid Leicestershire Ltd. This will be my second attempt at running such a distance. I ran Brighton Half -Marathon for myself, and so many people asked if I was running for charity and could they support me. This time you can, as I’m running the Leicester Half-Marathon for WALL. Your support means the world to me. Thank you.

I have aimed to fund raise the sum of £500; as this is the amount it costs to provide emergency shelter for a woman and child for one week.
