A woman who is part of the ‘Red Cross’ family will be taking part in the Paris marathon to raise money for the charity.
Elizabeth Hough, 31, who works at Morecambe Football Club as a corporate sales and events executive, will be starting her marathon at the Champs Elysee.
She will then run past wonderful sights of Place de la Concorde before passing the famous Louvre, Place de la Bastille, Pont Neuf, Eiffel Tower, through the heart of the city’s streets and along the River Seine.
Elizabeth, who has been volunteering for the Red Cross since she was 18, is the third generation of Red Cross volunteers in her family, as her mum Anne Hough and grandma Edith Mary Lockett have been involved for decades.
She said: “I’ve always kept my hand in in charity work and decided to combine my passion with running and charity. It’s important to give back to the community and I want to thank everyone for their encouragement and great support.” Elizabeth has already organised the first of a series of fundraising events before the race in 2015.
She held a coffee morning at her mum’s house and and raised £300.21.
