Name: Clare O’Hara
Job Title: Managing Director Epwin Window Systems.
About me: I’ve been in the Industry for 22 years. I’m married and live in Evesham, I’m the lucky Mum to Joseph 17 and Emma-Kate 12. My role demands long hours during the week so my free time is spent with the family, (I provide a very cheap taxi service for my 17 year old son)! I love walking in the Cotswolds with our two Labradors. I used to enjoy running but work has taken over recently so this challenge gives me a great focus to get fit again.
Canoeing and Cycling Experience: Absolutely none when we started discussing this challenge Gary couldn’t have suggested anything worse than canoeing I hate water.
Motivation: Primarily I thought it would be great for the girls in the industry to do their part for GM Fundraising as it’s such a fantastic cause. However fate would have it that Gary chose the dates and we finish on August 26th. My middle son Liam was born and passed away on 26th August 2002 so my motivation is doing something positive in his memory.
Fears: Water… seriously its always been a huge issue to me, but I’ve put a lot of effort into swimming over the summer so that’s a start!
Expectations: My expectation is that this becomes the first of many all Ladies events for GM Fundraising! We were delighted at how quickly we formed a team for this first event. Its hugely positive for us girls to do our bit, it will be tough but having met the team none of us are prepared to fail!
