New Pathways is incredibly lucky to have so many people who believe in what we do and who are willing to go to amazing lengths to help us to achieve our goals. Over the past month or so Matthew Hillard has run not only the Cardiff 10k but also the Cardiff Half Marathon. Matt achieved Personal Best times in both events. In the marathon he beat his previous best by 11 minutes and completed the race in 1 hour 43 minutes.
Matt says that running for New Pathways was ‘both emotionally and physically exhausting’ but ‘I was thinking about how the money I was raising might be able to give someone else the chance that I have been given and to offer that hope to someone else’. Matt raised an incredible £900 for New Pathways. Every single penny will go towards providing services for people who have experienced sexual violence, whether recently or in the past. Thank you Matt. We really couldn’t be more proud of you!
