Kirsty says, 'I love keeping fit and have always wanted to take on a big challenge like the London Marathon and thought what better time but now! The added incentive for me is to raise vital funds for a charity that I support and who needs more of a voice. That charity is SafeHands for Mothers, I’ve been so moved by their amazing work and am thrilled to be supporting them.'

Kirsty’s support will help in spreading the message about the importance of access to safe childbirth and healthcare for all and in raising funds to gather the personal stories of women whose lives have been changed by accessing health clinics around the world.

'We are honoured that Kirsty is running the London Marathon on our behalf. We will be cheering her on as we track her training and out en masse to show our support for her and all the other incredible runners on the day,' says SafeHands Founder Director, Nancy Durrell McKenna
