October 2017 On 8th October this year Nikki Petherick will be running the Oxford Half Marathon. It’s the furthest that she's ever run… ever! This time two years ago she couldn’t even run across the road. But she did the couch to 5k plan, and then pushed it a little further and ran a couple of 10ks.

Nikki is running to support OOSO in recognition of the help that OOSO has given to her mother, Elaine.
