In just under two weeks, on 2 October 2022, Miss Alex Lowe, our Assistant Head will be running, skipping and dancing along 42.2km of the prestigious London Marathon 2022.
Alex has just completed her last long training - 35km (from Eastbourne to Bexhill and back) and it is finally starting to feel real! She says "I am raising money for a small but incredible charity called TOFS (Tracheo-Oesophageal Fistula Support). Just like 1 in 3,500 babies, my partner's son was born with TOFS and he received life saving surgery in his first 48 hours of being born. The TOFS community were there for every part of the rollercoaster and still provide endless support. I am raising as much money as possible to help this charity provide lifelong support for those born unable to swallow."
The whole of the Bede's community wishes Alex the best of luck for the marathon. Please help Alex reach her goal by following this link to her fundraising page: https://www.
"Thank you for any pennies you can donate towards this incredible cause and help give me the motivation to beat the wall I will inevitably face. Wish me luck!"
