Kate Jayden cycled the length of the UK and ran 11 marathons in 21 days in aid of BEAT
Jones Sheridan, progressive financial advisers based in Crewe, are delighted to announce that Kate Jayden, Senior Paraplanner at the firm, has completed her extraordinary charity fundraising challenge.
In 21 days, Kate has cycled the length of the country and run 11 marathons.
The feat is even more exceptional given that she completed the 11 marathons in the final 11 days of the challenge, finishing with her fastest ever marathon time of 4 hours and 9 minutes on day 11.
To date, Kate and the team have raised an amazing £5,500 with all funds going to BEAT – the leading UK charity for people with eating disorders and their families.
BEAT provides helplines for adults and young people, online support and a UK-wide network of self-help groups to help people beat their eating disorder.
David Williams, Managing Director at Jones Sheridan, commented:
“Jones Sheridan is beyond proud of Kate’s efforts and would like to send its massive congratulations to her on this fantastic achievement.
We were happy to support Kate by sponsoring her kit and are delighted to have her back in one piece having raised such a tremendous amount for this worthy cause”.
Kate’s determination to support this cause is due to the fact that she herself battled against bulimia and anorexia between the ages of 16 and 24.
Her strong mental attitude enabled her to make a full recovery and Kate now strives to help those suffering with eating disorders.
The funds raised will help BEAT train 20 Young Ambassadors to reduce the stigma of mental health and campaign for better healthcare services.
