Guiding light Hannah will run for young girls in the marathon

Girlguiding volunteer Hannah Moran is appealing for donations as she prepares to run the TCS London Marathon on behalf of the youth organisation next month.

Hannah, 31, from Putney, has been a part of Girlguiding for 25 years since joining as a Rainbow.

Hannah is one of four volunteers running on behalf of Girlguiding this year. In addition to leading 25th Fulham Guides at All Saints Church Hall, Fulham High Street, Hannah sits on Girlguiding’s board of trustees.

She is passionate about showing girls that they can do anything, by mentoring school-age students and regularly speaking at universities about STEM career paths for girls.

Her fundraising efforts will help enable more girls to access the opportunities Girlguiding provides to be themselves, have fun, get creative, explore and try new things with new friends.

She is aiming to raise at least £4,000 and is well on course with the pledges so far, but is after a final push.

Hannah said: “I’ve experienced some incredible opportunities through Girlguiding – camps, international trips, weekly meetings and so much more.

“As a volunteer I’ve had the privilege to offer these opportunities to girls and young women while benefitting myself from being part of a community of amazing women. I am fundraising for Girlguiding so that we can continue to inspire girls and give them valuable skills, experience and confidence.”

Having completed a half-marathon before, Hannah is no stranger to training and has managed to fit it into her busy schedule, including a 34km coastal run while on holiday in Sicily.

Zoe Evans, who led a Girlguiding expedition to Argentina with Hannah in 2019, said: “Hannah is really driven and so I wasn’t surprised when she said she was running the marathon.

“She’s a very committed person and I think she’s just amazing for doing this. The girls in her unit love her. She’s so entertaining and approachable. I’m hoping to be able to support her in person – her efforts have already inspired me, a non-runner, to sign up for a half-marathon myself.”

Supported by more than 70,000 volunteers, the organisation provides a space for girls aged four to 18 to feel safe and accepted, find new friendships and have fun doing things they might never have tried before.
