We are proud to announce that one of our team members, David Rowland, is embarking on his most physically demanding challenge to date. Following a comprehensive discussion with David regarding his training regimen and his perspectives on the upcoming event, he stated:
“Training for the half marathon has been both physically demanding and incredibly rewarding. Over the past few months, I have dedicated countless hours to running, strength training, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, all in order to get myself into prime condition for the race. It hasn’t been easy, but I’m proud to say that I have persevered and overcome obstacles along the way.
As race day approaches, I am filled with a mix of excitement and nervous anticipation. The idea of pushing my body to its limits and accomplishing something I once deemed impossible is both exhilarating and humbling. I am grateful for the opportunity to challenge myself and to do so in support of a cause that touches the lives of so many.”
The Cardiff Half Marathon
The Cardiff Half Marathon has grown into one of the largest and most exciting road races in the United Kingdom. It is now one of Europe’s largest half marathons and is Wales’ largest mass participation and multi-charity fundraising event.
The staggering 13mile route will take its course from Cardiff Castle and finishing in the heart of cardiff’s city centre.
Below pictured is David’s route for the first of October.
“In addition to physical preparation, I have also been passionately fundraising for a cause that is dear to my heart , The Alzheimer’s Society. By participating in this half marathon, I aim to raise awareness and funds for this charity organisations valuable research, support programs, and initiatives. Their work in improving the lives of individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease is truly inspiring, and I am committed to doing my part in making a difference.”
The Alzheimer’s society help to work towards a world where dementia no longer devastates lives. Dementia is the biggest health and social challenge of our time. There are currently estimated to be 900,000 people in the UK with dementia. Many are undiagnosed and facing the realities of their condition alone. As a Society, and with the help of our supporters, they’re changing that.
Here is a few more words from David on how you can support him:
“This is where I humbly reach out to you for support. Any contribution you can make, no matter how small, will go a long way in supporting Alzheimer’s research and care. Your donation will provide hope to those impacted by this disease and will help fund vital resources and programs.
If you are unable to contribute financially at the moment, I completely understand. However, you can still show your support by cheering for me on race day or sharing my fundraising page with your own network of family, friends, or on social media platforms. Your encouragement and advocacy can help create a ripple effect of support and inspire others to make a difference as well.”
