On Sunday, 10 April, Kate Kelly, Headteacher at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, Hillsborough, Sheffield, along with her husband, Phil and Steve Moran, Learning Mentor at Sacred Heart School, took part in the 40th Greater Manchester Marathon.

This was the first marathon which Steve and Kate had ever done and so it was a huge physical and mental achievement.

The trio undertook this demanding event to help raise funds for Sheffield Children’s Hospital. Both Steve and Kate have disabled children who have benefited greatly from the care provided by the Children’s Hospital and they were keen to give something back.

Kate, Phil and Steve have been overwhelmed by the tremendous support thy have received from family, friends and the entire community of Sacred Heart. Together, they have raised over £1,400 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

An amazing accomplishment for all of them, but Kate isn’t planning to stop here – in September she will be taking on the Race for Life half marathon at Clumber Park for Cancer Research UK and, in October, she will be taking part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon in London, in aid of the Meningitis Trust.
