Running is hard work for anyone, but for somebody like Chris, who is trying to turn his life around, it’s a lifesaver.
Chris has battled homelessness and substance misuse, but is putting all that behind him with the help from the London Irish Centre and Anchor House, an East End homeless charity.
Chris is in full time employment, currently working in retail in Stratford’s Westfield. He is also training to run the London Marathon – all 26 miles of it.
Just over one year ago, Chris left Dublin for London and found himself without a roof over his head. He was supported by the London Irish Centre to find emergency housing and to get set up in London and was eventually referred to Anchor House in Canning Town, East London.
Chris has since become a member of the East End Running club, as running has been a passion of his since his teens.
“It’s great to be able to use all your energy positively, and I now do my best to keep healthy,” said Chris.
When the London Irish Centre advertised for one runner to run the London Marathon on their behalf Chris was the first to put his hand up to raise funds for the charity.
His own struggles led Chris to want to give back to the London Irish Centre.
“Many people helped me when I needed it,” he said. “Without the London Irish Centre and Anchor House, I would have no idea where I would be right now.”
“I’ve always enjoyed running, but it was a pastime. Now I feel really motivated as I know my efforts are helping a charity that done so much to help me,” said Chris.
He said, “I never thought I would be able to accomplish something like this and to be able to do that is definitely going to turn my life around.”
And that, more than anything, is the goal.
