Kisharon en­joys a pair-fect day

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY ROSA DO­HERTY

FOR LORIN Bradley and Saul May­ers, crossing the fin­ish line to­gether was the only op­tion.

“At first in train­ing we were run­ning dif­fer­ent times but we got in sync quite quickly,” said Mr May­ers, 26. “We are both keen run­ners.”

The Hamp­stead cou­ple raised £3,000 for Kisharon, which helps young peo­ple with com­plex learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.

Ms Bradley opted for Kisharon after vol­un­teer­ing in its ac­ces­sories store in Tem­ple For­tune.

The pair, who re­turned a time of four hours 41 min­utes, had been wor­ried about not be­ing able to com­plete the race due to train­ing in­juries. “But we kept each other go­ing. Lorin was great at telling me to hang in there and we were re­ally happy with our time.

“We have been to­gether for six years but this has made us stronger,” he said. “I think if you can do this to­gether, you can do any­thing.”

Also run­ning for Kisharon were mother and daugh­ter Danielle Donne and Mi­randa She­men.

Mrs She­men, 24, came home in just un­der four hours. Mrs Donne, 54, fin­ished in four hours 18 min­utes.

“We didn’t stay to­gether but I was hop­ing she was doing fine all the way round,” Mrs She­men said about her mum. “I was get­ting text up­dates from my dad about where she was the whole time so that was good.

“I was hav­ing night­mares about not be­ing able to find my way but I was fine. I think it was just nerves. I lis­tened to my marathon playlist which kept me go­ing be­cause it was made up of songs se­lected by the dif­fer­ent peo­ple who do­nated.”

Mrs She­men raised £2,500 to­wards the over­all £25,000 brought in by Kisharon’s 10 par­tic­i­pants.
