85-year-old stars in Adidas campaign – for charity

This 85 year-old is making history as she stars in Adidas latest campaign video.

Wow! Tell me more

Barbara Thackray is on a mission to raise money for St Ann’s Hospice – a charity she has been supporting for over 10 years.

After starting to run at age 77, Barbara decided to use it as a tool to raise funds for St Ann’s Hospice, as they took great care of her late sister, Audrey.


Barbara’s latest race was when she took on the Trafford 10k on her 85th birthday – and achieved a new personal best of 85 minutes.

Now, Barbara is in Adidas’ latest campaign video for her positivity and dedication to running; and hopefully, it will help her raise funds for St Ann’s Hospice, too.
