Compassion Challenges -Caroline Barton

Challenger Profile


Caroline Barton

Challenge Date:

21st April 2024

My Challenge:

London Marathon 2024




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £2,708.64

Offline Total: £75.00

Gift Aid: £349.66

I started running during the first lockdown of Covid and never in my wildest dreams thought it would go much beyond couch to 5k, but having managed a couple of half marathon distance runs I thought why not go for it and make it count. Having supported Compassion nearly all my adult life I count it an absolute privilege to run on behalf of this charity and very much look forward to the challenge set before me.

I am more the tortoise than the hare at 54! but am determined I will gently make my way to the finishing line with Gods help ????

I am taking part in this challenge to raise funds for Compassion. Compassion educate, feed and support children and their families in underprivileged areas throughout the world. We can have a positive influence on these young lives if we join together in supporting this charity. Without an education their future is near hopeless but through Compassions sponsorships and donations young lives have been changed forever, many have grown into adulthood with good qualifications and managed to become professionals in their field and this in turn enables them to support their families and give back.
