QPR FC Women’s midfielder Laura Hennessy has joined our Race Europe squad.
As announced earlier last month QPR In the Community Trust will joining up with 13 other London Clubs to participate in this year’s “Race Europe” event and we are delighted to announce that QPR Women’s star Laura Hennessy will become a vital part of our squad.
Working in groups of 23, each Trust/Foundation from across the capital, will look to be the fastest to cover the 6,720 miles which separate all of the Euro 2021 Host Cities - whilst raising some much-needed funds, during these unprecedented times.
As Hennessy looks to maintain her fitness following the postponement of our Women’s football season, the launch of Race Europe could’ve not come at a better time for the midfielder.
Hennessy told www.qpr.co.uk: “I am delighted to be a part of this fantastic initiative.
“Ensuring that you remain fit and healthy has become so important during these past few months and to be able to support QPR in the Community Trust whilst I keep fit is great.
“It doesn’t matter how fit you are, whether you are taking your dog for a walk, or washing the car any exercise can make a huge difference.
“I’m sure everyone at the Women’s side will be cheering me on, so I am excited to get going and hopefully we can raise some much needed money for the Trust.”
The event which runs during the month of March will see participants able to log their miles in nearly 80 different activities (subject to any Government guidelines).
