On Sunday 24th March, Mrs Squires and Mrs Cleaves took up the challenge of running 13.1 miles in the London Landmarks Half Marathon. Weaving in and out of many of London’s famous sights, the half marathon supports fundraising for many charities and was the first half marathon ever for our amazing pair, who only started running in the last 6 months! 
The ladies were running for Action Duchenne, a charity supporting research into Muscular Dystrophy, after the diagnosis of Mrs Squires son in May 2018. 
They were cheered on on the day by several staff, as well as family and friends, and in completing the race, raised an incredible £7,170 for the charity, the seventh highest fundraisers of the 15,000 entrants. Nearly £2,000 was donated by Courtwood staff and parents alone; thank you you all in our Courtwood community who were able to support.
