Bootham School teachers, Eamonn Molloy and Andy Hedges, who have been in training for the upcoming York Marathon, were joined by a special guest supporter from local children’s charity SNAPPY. The pair plan to raise money for the charity through their sponsorship website (www.justgiving.com/AndyEamonnSnappy). This will be the first marathon for both of them.
Eamonn Molloy, Head of Design Technology at Bootham explained:
Students from the School have been helping the charity and a group went there in the summer to paint a mural to decorate the building. It’s an excellent cause and we just want to do all we can to help. I’ve been training for a year, but really I’ll be just happy to complete it in one piece!
Andy Hedges, who also teaches at Bootham said:
A colleague of ours took part in the first York Marathon last year and she inspired us to do it – if she can, we can, and I’m quietly hoping to put in a good time!
