On Thursday 8th of May, Zoe Hitchcock and her family visited Plymouth Musketeers Running Club.
The Plymouth Musketeers presented a trophy to Zoe as a special award to recognise her spirit and determination completing the Schools’ Challenge at the Plymouth Half Marathon:
"Zoe is not very old, she’s not very big, and she doesn’t look very strong. But if you think that, you are mistaken. She is amazing! Zoe set herself a goal, put a big smile on her face, and tried the hardest she could. Supported by those around her, she achieved it.
She is a shining example of the spirit we aspire to in this club: It's not about being first, it is about taking part, smiling and helping each other to achieve the best we can.
We are proud to have her as our Hero 2014.
Congratulations Zoe, You’re awesome!"
