Imogen to run Southampton Marathon in aid of us

Imogen Naegeli from Southampton will be running the half marathon race in the ABP Southampton Marathon event in April (2023) in aid of us. The 21-year-old was challenged to take on the run by her sister, Chloe.

Mental and physical challenge

Imogen said: “I am really looking forward to running the half marathon race at this year’s ABP Southampton Marathon event. My sister Chloe works for the charity, so I am well aware of the fantastic work it does. I wanted to do my bit to contribute towards it.

“I’ve been running on and off for more than three years and feel it is a mental challenge as well as a physical challenge for me. I want to be able to say I’ve completed it and see improvements in my fitness levels. I can’t wait to get to the starting line!”
