On February 16th 2019 we will be hosting the AGF’s annual Holden Haiti Marathon in Boutillier, near Port Au Prince. This year we are expecting 50 participants from 7 countries.

We wanted to give you an update on some of our participants focusing on the collective “Three go to Haiti” and what they are doing to raise funds for the event:

• Cathy lives in Leicester with Martin, Grace, Lucy and Joseph, and for the last 8 years has been a personal trainer, helping lots of people across South Leicestershire get fitter and feel better.

• Sarah has lived with her husband Lino, and until recently their, now grown up daughters, Lucia and Elisa, and Buster and Baxter the dogs! Thanks to Cathy spurring her on she aims to be fit and ready for the run as well as the emotional challenge of visiting Haiti and its people.

• Martin lives with Cathy, Grace, Lucy, Joseph and occasionally Rascal, when his owners are away.

Sarah, Cathy and Martin will be the hosts for a very special evening dinner and fundraising auction at Sarah and Lino’s restaurant, Boboli, in Kibworth Harcourt on Thursday 22nd November 2018. Lots include a Spa Day, 2 tickets for Don Quixote at the Royal Opera House, family photo shoots, plenty of alcohol and much more.

The auction starts at 8:30pm GMT. Sadly all of the tickets have now been sold but you can still view the lots and register for online bidding here.
