My name is Naomi Skinner and I was born and bred in Maidstone. For the past 4 years I have worked as a primary teacher in Vietnam. I use Freedom Fitness to train every time I'm back home.
My next challenge is running 2200km, solo and unsupported, from Hanoi to HCMC. I am raising funds for Vietnamese education and healthcare as well as reuniting trafficked women and children with their families. The charities I am running on behalf of are small and any donations will make a huge difference to the lives of the children.
I aim to run a half marathon, 5 days a week, over the course of 6 months. Along the way, I will pass through tiny rural communities, beautiful beaches as well as bustling towns and cities.
My start date is the 6th of October and I am currently buzzing with excitement and nervous energy!
