In 2004, my husband was told I had just 40 minutes to live. This illness and an additional rare blood cancer MDS has made me grab every opportunity life has thrown my way ever since – and I am committed to enabling others to do the same.
Over the past 15 years, I have run 17 marathons – including one in a very heavy 7-foot beer bottle costume, I’ve swum ultra-marathons, cycled the Prudential 100 Ride London on a heavy tandem, raised thousands of pounds for, and become a Patron of, the blood cancer charity MDS Patient Support Group.
Caitlin has set up the huge and thriving Bearcat Running Club community, been awarded a Richmond Council Community award for sport and charity, won the Prime Minister’s Point of Light Award and been praised by former PM David Cameron for “tireless dedication”. She is also a Life and Business Coach, Motivational Speaker and an ambassador for lululemon and Digme Fitness and Running Mayor for West London.
