It's nearly 4 weeks since Kev passed away. Words can't explain how much we're all missing him. Thank you again to everyone who's donated in his memory, it means a lot to know others are thinking of him x

On Sunday 21 October 2012, like thousands of others, Kevin Paterson got up and made his preparations for the Great Birmingham Run. Unlike the thousands of others who took part, Kevin didn’t come home. He collapsed almost as soon as crossing the finish line. Despite receiving the best possible medical treatment immediately, he died. He was 36 years old. 

Kevin's wife Katy has chosen Cardiac Risk in the Young as the charity that should benefit from anyone wishing to make a donation in Kevin's memory. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit Kevin's JustGiving page. If you would like to make a donation then please do.
