Rebecca runs to help horses

A HANHAM woman is preparing to tackle her sixth London Marathon this month.  

Rebecca Walker is running on April 23 to raise money for the Brooke charity, which aims to improve working life for donkeys, horses and mules. 

Rebecca said: “Having grown up with horses my whole life, I want to help these beautiful working animals along with donkeys and mules around the world. I love raising money knowing it will change their lives for the better.”

Training for a marathon is never an easy task, but Rebecca believes that “anything is possible in life if you want it badly enough and this is the mentality I have used in all of my marathons.” 

Rebecca has a wealth of running experience, having represented the RAF in distance running and competing in the 2022 Sri Lanka Ultra X 250km race, where she was awarded fifth place and qualified for the Ultra X World Championships in Slovenia. Rebecca has also competed in the Edinburgh Marathon. 

Brooke reaches over 1.4 million working horses, donkeys and mules. The charity works with owners, animal health providers and policy makers for immediate and long-lasting improvements.
