Kitty decided to support SafeWise – a local Road Safety charity. Kitty was involved in a road accident before lockdown and was struggling with PTSD as a result. In order to help her regain some confidence on the roads, Kitty and her Mum thought it best to keep trying everyday to walk and face the challenge of the roads. This led to her making this part of her challenge and decided to walk or run a Marathon distance every week for 4 weeks. She gained sponsorship from her family and completed over 4 marathons in 4 weeks! Kitty contacted SafeWise to tell them about her challenge. They were very supportive and plan to use the money raised to promote their safety messaging.
In addition, Kitty gained the confidence to provide the Police with a Victim Statement for the upcoming prosecution of the driver that caused the accident.
“It was really hard to do but without this project I don’t think I could have done it. I have made the little changes myself by facing something that really scared me (and still does), and I have been able to talk to friends and family about the importance of road safety. I hope to continue this in the future.”
