Miss NKem Akpuaka ran the Paris Marathon on Sunday 7th April 2013 for the British Menopause Society and Women’s Health Concern. Her time was 5 hours 7 minutes which she says “wasn’t great” but we thought was brilliant!
Kem teaches English to 3-11 year olds in an international primary school in Paris. She says “Whilst researching the Internet for information on women’s health after several fruitless visits to my Surgery, I found your website – it is brilliant! If only I had seen your factsheets and talked with your nurse advisers I would have had more knowledge and confidence approaching my GP.
“Despite my aches and pains I left the day after the run (and I didn’t stop once!) on a school trip to England with 58 children! I have been so touched and overwhelmed by everybody’s generosity: family, friends and members and supporters of the Charity. Thank you so..ooo much xx.”
For those who would still like to donate you can support Kem on our behalf until 31st May 2013, either through her own Just Giving fundraising page or by one of the Ways of donating direct to WHC. Thank you.
