Merseyside firefighter to run Liverpool ½ marathon in full kit for charity

A Merseyside firefighter will be running the Liverpool ‘Rock ‘n' Roll' ½ Marathon in full firefighting kit this weekend to raise money for charity. Kimberley Antoine, a firefighter from Formby based at Aintree Community Fire Station, will take on the Liverpool ‘Rock ‘n' Roll ½ Marathon on Sunday, 28 May 2017, in full firefighting gear and a breathing apparatus set.  The kit, weighing around 15kg, will be worn by Kimberley throughout the 13.1 mile race which will begin at the Albert Dock on Liverpool Waterfront and end at Liverpool Echo Arena. Fitness enthusiast Kimberley, who has been a firefighter for 2 years, will be raising money for baby charity Tommy's, which funds research in to the cause of premature births, stillbirths and miscarriages, and 'The Fire Fighters Charity' which supports firefighters and their families in times of need.

A qualified personal trainer who has undertaken a number of triathlons, marathons and ½ marathons, Kimberley said:- "I regularly compete in races yet this is going to be my greatest challenge yet!  However, running 13.1 miles in full firefighting kit and breathing apparatus doesn't compare to the challenges other people have to deal with in life. The 2 charities I am running for make an incredible difference to people in times of need. I know 1st hand the devastating effect losing a child has on families and Tommy's funds research in to pregnancy problems and helps parents have healthy pregnancies. The Fire Firefighters Charity provides services, help and support to serving and retired Fire Service staff who have suffered illness, injury and psychological trauma. Any donations, no matter how small, will make a huge difference to families affected by miscarriage, stillbirth and trauma. I am so grateful for everyone's support."
