"My name is Emily and on 28 April 2019 I will be running the London Marathon for NEWCIS, a charity who essentially keep our unpaid carers, caring.

I joined NEWCIS as a trustee in 2017 and this has given me the opportunity to get to know a bit more about a caring role, a world I knew little about beforehand. I have also got to know the workforce at NEWCIS who are committed, experienced, and all motivated by one aim - to support carers.

NEWCIS are there to help keep those carers caring by providing support and guidance throughout their caring journey, and beyond.

I started running about four years ago and haven’t looked back. We are lucky in North Wales to have such a beautiful place to run around! It is a great opportunity to be running the London Marathon for NEWCIS; as I have become involved with the charity the more, I realise how valuable to service is, and how many lives it touches.

Thank you for your interest and for your support - whether you have donated, ran with me, handed out marathon tips or shared the word of NEWCIS - keep it coming!"

"The London Marathon training doesn’t stop in the snow! I’m running for NEWCIS - a charity supporting unpaid carers. Did you know that 3 in 5 of us will care for a loved one (if we’re not already)? Thank you for your support so far!"

"Below which recorded 37 miles last week after I ran the half marathon distance on Saturday. I ran in Llangollen along the canal which is flat – and long enough to get the mileage in! I got chatting to a lady afterwards and she was telling me that her husband had just had a diagnosis that would mean she too would be a carer shortly – it is amazing how many people around us are affected – I made sure she remembered NEWCIS!"


Why not take on your own challenge?

This April NEWCIS are encouraging everyone to set their own challenge in support of carers. Set yourself a target of miles to complete and help raise money for the carers Christmas meal.
