Putting their best foot forward for Future Talent
On Sunday 6th March 2011 Ben and Sarah Coombs raised funds for Future Talent by completing the 13.1 mile course that is the Bath Half Marathon. It was the 30th year the race had taken place and as Sarah and Ben were fast approaching their 30th birthdays it seemed only appropriate to partake in their biggest challenge to date! Ben’s late sister and Future Talent’s first Administrator Lucy, introduced Ben and Sarah to the work of Future Talent and with this in mind, it was an obvious choice who they would fundraise for.
Supported by their many family, friends and star supporter seven-month old daughter Maisie Lou, Sarah and Ben raised £350 for Future Talent.
Training three to four times a week from November, Ben and Sarah certainly found it hard going with a baby in tow! However there was a carnival atmosphere on the streets of Bath and the thousands of supporters, spectators and the occasional band, gave much needed motivation en route.
A huge thank you to Ben and Lucy from everyone here at Future Talent!
