Over the past 4 years Jo has been a constant fundraiser for the charity Cash for Kids raising over £8000 via Just Giving and Everyday Hero fundraising pages. She has been called the women’s equivalent of “Forrest Gump” because of her love of running and she has incorporated this passion to put together some great events and raise monies for some amazing causes.
In 2011, she completed 100 race miles which included 2 marathons, half marathons, 10k and 5k events totalling 100 miles. This was all completed within a 6 month period. The year after she and 5 others teamed up for the 24 hour Treadmill Event, something that Jo masterminded herself and pitched to the organisers of a 24 hour Radio City event. In 2013 the event was changed to a 12 hour Treadmill where 12 runners from Liverpool Running Club ran together to raise money. This again was an event that Jo put together and this and the others have raised thousands for the Cash for Kids Charity in bucket collections. She has raised the profile of Liverpool Running Club and the Liverpool running community across a wide arena.
