A BHT team of runners took on Brighton’s half marathon on Sunday 25 February to help combat homelessness, create opportunities and promote change.
Fundraising for BHT services, Team BHT have raised over £1,000 in sponsorship so far.
Made up of ex-service users, supporters, staff and board members, Team BHT put in a substantial amount of training to ensure they were fit enough to take on the challenge.
2018 was the 28th year of The Grand Brighton Half Marathon, and the race is now one of the most popular in the UK.
It’s not too late to donate!
BHT believed in me when I had lost all hope. I ran to give something back, knowing that the money raised will help vulnerable people in the community, who, with BHT’s support, can go on to achieve great things.
I’ve never run any distance before, so at 53 years old that was really hard, but nowhere near as tough as living on the streets of our city. My running time was 2:08:45. Not bad for a first timer.
Peter Hutt, a former BHT staff member and ex-client of BHT services.
This challenge was taken to support BHT’s wellbeing work culture and the different challenges employees undertake for their physical and emotional wellbeing, as well as supporting our amazing staff and volunteers at our homeless day centre, First Base.
Their work is key to Peter’s success story.
