K&FF Marathon Runners 2017

YOU WON’T BELIEVE IT!

Everybody who has ever worked, performed or socialised with Kev Moore (Froggai) knows that it would take something incredible for him to add running to his busy schedule. Turns out that thing is Krissy & Friends Foundation.

He has done the ground work, trained, jogged and other stuff runners do, keeping it all under wraps and now the countdown starts!

Next Sunday (23rd April), Kev will run the London Marathon, yes the real one, and despite keeping it quiet he has been sighted running the streets of Ipswich, Kesgrave, Felixstowe and beyond in preparation.

If you see him out running don’t hesitate to give him a wave and let us know – preferably with a picture – we need proof!!!

And the brilliant Colin Russell is back at it again too – as he’ll also be running on the big day.

More importantly please donate some money to help provide therapy though music to local children, as any little amount of money you can offer adds up to a lot and will help so many young people of East Anglia and that’s what all the effort is for.

Keep up the great work guys, and best of luck next week from us all at K&FF.

UPDATE: Colin can no longer run this year due to injury, however he will be ready for next year. Wishing you a speedy recovery Colin! 

Marathon Runners: Final Update

As you should know, we had two wonderful people, Clare and Colin, run the London Marathon for us on the 24th of April.

You may have even been following their progress on our Facebook page, but if not… here’s the final summary for you.

First off, we just want to say we cannot thank Colin and Clare enough for their gruelling day. They both finished the marathon and have, at last count, raised approximately £2,000.

We are in the stages of launching our referral process and this money will go a LONG way to supporting many young people and their families. Well done to you both… You are nothing short of amazing!

Clare (aka “Duch … the London Marathon Finisher!”) said earlier this week:

“It’s been a bit of a roller coaster! My legs are finally talking to me again, on Monday morning I had to literally crawl to the bathroom as I just couldn’t walk!

Sooo… I only went and blinkin’ did it!

I just want to say thank you so much for coming down to support me, those that did, because I honestly don’t think I would have been able to carry on after mile 18… I wasn’t in the best of places and coming round the corner and seeing a bunch of you there was just brilliant.

 I’ve had a few people point out that the page was still open for donations, so have seen quite a few more donations come through. I can’t believe how much we’ve been able to raise for you though! 

I hope we have raised enough for you guys to be able to carry on the great work you are already doing to help the kiddies and their families.

Off now to get a pedicure done to thank my tootsies for getting me round without any blisters or losing any toenails!”
