My name is Chrissy Desforges and I’m a 45 year old mother of three who is passionate about raising money for those in need anywhere. I co-run a local Food Bank, ‘The Grace Food Bank’, where I work one day per week and have set up donation schemes in many Catholic schools and churches across Sheffield. I am also aware that there are so many people across the world who are struggling with famine, thirst, ill health and exploitation.
My other passion is running, so that’s why I’ve decided to do ‘The Great Yorkshire Run’ this year to raise money for CAFOD. I love to run because it’s my ‘time out’ from the demands of work (I’m a teacher), and family. It’s fun and it makes me notice and feel connected to nature. That’s my excuse for being so slow – I’m actually meditating at the same time as running !
