Helen Rennie took on a huge challenge in August by entering the Race Across Scotland and setting herself an incredible target of running 215 miles in just 100 hours, to raise funds for I AM and autistic families in Manchester.
She joined an international field of ultrarunners following a trail that took in some of Scotlands most breathtaking Scottish countryside and most challenging terrain, including the coastline of Portpatrick and the forests of the Southern Uplands, and along tracks steeped in Scottish history.
Helen in total raised an £4135 with an initial target of £2,000, but due to a tendon injury, she was unable to complete the race this time. However, she did complete an incredible 104 miles and as she recovers from her injury, as already submitted her application for next years race.
We are delighted that Helen decided to raise money for I AM and from our whole team, wish her a very speedy recovery and we’re sure she will conquer the Race Across Scotland next year.
Autistic Spectrum Conditions impact the lives of so many and whilst here at I AM we can support many people, with additional funds we could do so much more.
