Running down the pier in Whitby on my birthday Run Leeds article and Crowdfunder January 11, 2016 in Practice, Sport Laura Fitzgerald wrote an amazing article about my journey in athletics for the popular Run Leeds blog. The transformation in Penny is one that has stuck with me over the years and we continue to be in contact. Last year, we nominated her as the Disability Sportswoman of the Year at the 2015 Leeds Sports awards for which she was highly recommended. Her passion and enthusiasm for sport is inspiring and she is a true ambassador of the ethos of the latest Sport England This Girl Can campaign. Her determination has meant that she continues to provide new PB’s year on year and would like to reach the ultimate goal of the Paralympic Games and help more women realise their potential whether they have the Olympic or Paralympic dream or would just like to find the same confidence and self-esteem that Penny found through sport. — Laura Fitzgerald, Leeds City Council I also set up a crowdfunding campaign on Laura's advice. If you could support this, I'd be very grateful.
