The notorious Cadair Idris Mountain Half Marathon, known in Welsh as Ras-y-Gadar, is a tough route to glory. Barbara will have to make her way to the mountain summit almost 3,000 feet above sea level and back again, on ever changing terrain.
She is taking on the challenge to raise funds for RNC, after meeting Fundraising Manager, Melanie Denning, at a business event organised by Sterling Networks. She says:
‘I love challenging myself and pushing myself to the limits and I love supporting those in need.’
Barbara’s support couldn’t have come at a more significant time for the charity. The estimated financial impact of Covid-19 on the College is over £500,000 and counting. This money has been spent to safeguard its staff and students when on campus, with extra staffing, cleaning and PPE, and to ensure students had the necessary accessible technology and software when learning remotely.
Barbara is certainly undertaking a tough challenge but, hopefully, the incredible views of Cregennen Lakes, the Mawddach Estuary and Barmouth Bridge will be a welcome distraction on the day.
