Corrine aims to raise a minimum of £2,000 through her marathon endeavour, with every penny going towards supporting St Basils mission to end youth homelessness.

St Basils provides vital support to over 4,000 vulnerable young people annually, offering accommodation and essential opportunities for skills development and life-building.

Corrine's decision to run the London Marathon for St Basils stems from her firsthand experience working closely with the charity. Capsticks' Birmingham office selected St Basils as its chosen charity, and Corrine has been actively involved, from assisting with gardening projects to participating in fundraising events like her first 10k race in May 2023.

Expressing her motivation, Corrine said: "I've witnessed the invaluable impact St Basils has on young people facing homelessness in our community. Their commitment to providing not just shelter but also opportunities for growth resonates deeply with me. Running the London Marathon is my way of contributing to their vital cause."

Training for the marathon has been an arduous journey for Corrine, pushing her limits both physically and mentally. Despite the challenges, she remains steadfast in her commitment to crossing the finish line and making a meaningful difference in the lives of many vulnerable young people in our community.

Reflecting on her journey, Corrine added: "Running a marathon has always been a personal goal, but it's also become a symbol of resilience and determination. I'm proud to be representing St Basils during this monumental challenge."

Barrie Hodge, head of Fundraising and Communications at St Basils, commended Corrine's dedication, saying "We're incredibly grateful for Corrine's unwavering support and determination. Her efforts will directly impact the lives of so many young people in need, providing them with hope, skills and opportunities for a brighter future."
