On January 17th 2020 our dear friends tragically lost their son Harry aged only 16, he had a short battle with leukaemia!
This is every parents worst possible nightmare & the heart break this has bought is unbearable.
There are sadly no words, no gesture, no anything which can help relieve the pain they are all having to endure, but even under these tragic circumstances everytime we have seen them they put on a courageous face & smile & are doing there up most to carry on....! They are already in the process of setting up a charity in memory of Harry- The Harry Bennett Foundation!
It is impossible to know what to do to help friends when they are going through such dark times, which brings us to our journey-
Six months ago four friends embarked on the journey of running the Paris Marathon together, it has been a goal we all individually had shared & wanted to achieve together!!!! The training has been a rollercoaster of emotion & taken its toll on us all, & sadly two of our friends have had to pull out due to injury!
With our friends no longer part of the race it had us now questioning & speaking to our coach about whether we should drop out, our coaches response to this was that we now have a reason to run- "run for Harry!!!!" & that is exactly what we are going to do!
We will be running for- Harry, for grief, for life, for our friendship & for the unbelievable courage & strength the Bennett's family are showing every day!!!
So as we embark on our final months leading up to this race- could you help us? & show your support to this incredible family & charity- The Harry Bennett foundation!!
