My Name is Kate Piringer and I live in Hinckley. I am a registered Childrens Nurse, and have always been interested in doing things for others, which mainly came from my work many years ago. This was unitl I had children and started to have responsibilites of my own to take care of.
It made me realise that I wanted to do more for others not just through my work that I got paid for but completely independent from this, with no monetary reward, but just pride in what I had achieved for others. This became more apparent especially in the last few years with close ones becoming ill.
I have ran the Great North Run half marathon for Yorkshire cancer, Manchester 10k Bupa run for Christie Hospice, Wolf run 10k for Dorothy Goodman School and even the Hinckely 5k for Loros, but below is just a little more information on why this next run is the most important race so far.
I am updating my blog to see if anybody could help me sponsor some money for the Virgin London Marathon 2014! I am sure all of you have great causes that you all support, but I thought you may want to know why I am passionate about running this marathon and the reasons behind it. I am running on behalf of two great men in my life, that being Pete Piringer my Father in law and my dad John Farrell. Both have battled with Cancer and one whom it has again taken hold of him for the last time. I am running for the Help and Care Charity, which no its is not a Cancer Charity but it is a Charity that's assists the Elderly via medical assistance and support in the Community. I would be so thankful if you could help me in anyway. And would also like to say I will be thinking of Claire Squires who tragically died at the marathon 2 yrs ago this April during the race, who I worked with as a child and was a childhood friend RIP. xx Or donate to www.justgiving.com and then input name Kate Farrell as runner to wesite contact details.
