Guiding is so important to today's girls. Building confidence, living life and experiencing situations that give life-long memories. Friendships made through Girlguiding are "forever friendships". It was my pleasure to run the marathon to ensure the next generation of girls get life lessons in the most enjoyable way possible.' - Tracey, Marathon Runner
