Episode 17: Laura Maisey
This week Laura Maisey joins Breifne Earley to discuss her upcoming adventure of Running Home From Rome which starts in September 2016. The run will retrace, in reverse, the ancient pilgrim route "Via Francigena" which was first mapped out in the eighth century from the English cathedral city Cantebury to Rome.
Laura shares her story of a chance encounter with the leaders of Project Awesome who convinced her to try her hand at exercise and a love of running grew to place her at the start of a 1,200 mile odyssey across the Alps and covering most of Europe.
Raising funds for The Ronald McDonald House to help the families of sick children after her own childhood illnesses were relived through the experience of one of the children of a Project Awesome friend.
Months before the start of the run she has already smashed her fundraising target of a pound per mile, resulting in her doubling her inital target.
Laura shows that even the most unlikely people can undertake massive physical challenges and create a positive example for others.
