Parvale House Hero runs the London 10k marathon

August 7, 2015

The PWSA is a charity very close to the hearts of all our Colleagues and Services supporting individuals with PWS via Gretton Homes.

Mike Price, the husband of Eve, Service Manager at De Parys recently completed the London 10K in July and raised an amazing £350. He chose to run for the PWSA as his wife has worked with and supported people with PWS for many years and felt it was a worthy cause and great source of inspiration.

Mike, with much determination and dedication, trained hard for the event running three times a week and starting his runs very often at 5am! He received a lot of support and encouragement from Eve his wife and friends at the Gretton Homes family of services.

Mike said “The toughest part was getting out of bed at 5am on a cold winters Monday morning, most satisfying was seeing so many people taking part in the 10k in London and getting a great finishing time. A particular highlight was the Team from Gretton Homes supporting me at the finishing line. I had a huge sense of achievement and finished the run in just 55 minutes”.

When asked what challenge he might do next Mike said “Would need time to think about that!!”

Karen Wilkinson at PWSA said “Thank you so much for all your fantastic efforts. The 10k runners so inspired the team at PWSA they may have a team running next year!”
