Mum of seven Liz Jones needs you

19 November 2013

Vote for CAFOD supporter Liz Jones to get her own place in the London Marathon 2014 and run for us in fancy dress!

Liz Jones has entered a London Marathon blogging competition where she explains why she should get a place to run for CAFOD. Surrounded by her seven children, she tells us how she was motivated to get fit and healthy by taking up running and has now run over seven half marathons.

“I am inspired to raise this money for CAFOD because of the amazing work they do- I have always supported CAFOD through my local Parish in Cardiff, and I want next year to be the year I can fundraise for them dressed as Snow White with my seven children supporting!”

If you would like to support Liz to achieve her marathon dream then please vote for her by following this link.

If Liz gets enough votes and wins her place then she won’t be the only one in fancy dress. Liz said: “It’d be great to have all my children there as well dressed up as the seven dwarves. My husband David would be there as well, my family and friends have decided what he should dress up as - so he will be supporting as the wicked queen!"

Liz and David are also joining CAFOD at the annual Nativity Fun Run at Clapham Common on the 14th December! If Liz’s story has inspired you to run for CAFOD in fancy dress, then register here to join the CAFOD Nativity Run team today.

For an even bigger challenge, CAFOD still has places in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2014. See our marathon webpage to download an application form and run with our team, and transform lives.
