Katy Takes on The Oxford Half Marathon

Dedicated Archway Volunteer Katy Owen tell’s us why she’s running The Oxford Half Marathon for Archway in October.

“Many of us know what it feels like to be lonely – in fact 9 million of us always or often feel lonely. The Archway Foundation is an amazing small charity supporting those hurt by loneliness in Oxfordshire. Archway provides a much-needed support network to vulnerable adults, many of whom have experienced complex challenges and barriers in their lives.

I’ve been lucky enough to volunteer for them since January and I’ve heard first hand how Archway’s social clubs and befriending service transform people’s confidence and social lives. Archway’s staff and volunteers are some of the most dedicated and empathetic people I’ve met, and that’s why I’m raising money for them in my attempt to tackle the Oxford Half.”
