Story

I am so excited to be running London Marathon in 2024 for Severn Hospice. In April 2023, my Dad Mike Kirk sadly passed after a sudden cardiac event at age 60. He was cared for in his final days at Severn Hospice, who made those final hours so special and dignified for me and my family and this is one way I can give my thanks back to everyone at Severn, help future families in our unfortunate position, and honour my dad in a way he would love! 


My dad was a keen runner, I however, am a complete novice. He was a run leader in the Oswestry Olympians, had ran London and Manchester marathon multiple times before, and completed many triathlons too. I am running this for my dad, who would be so proud to see me do something like this and to make me feel closer to him. He wanted to run London Marathon 2024 in 3 hours 25 mins, I won’t be able to do it as quick as him, maybe double that time!!


Something so special to me about London Marathon 2024, is that it is going to be exactly a year to the day that my dad passed, 21st of April 2023. This is my sign that my dad is watching over me taking this fantastic journey, and pushing me right to the finish line. 


Any donations for me would be greatly appreciated, and is going to such an amazing cause that help individuals and family’s create special memories with loved ones in their final days.
