Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit out JustGiving page.

As a family Jackie, John, Natalie, Josh, Sharon, Margie, Mick, Laura, Sarah, Guy, Stu and I are running the great north run on 10th September 2017.

It has been 20 years since we tragically lost our beloved Ryan. So we have decided to do this in his memory. The great north run is a half marathon so just over 20km, so 1km for every year we have been without him.

Ryan was only 2 and a half when he was so cruelly taken from us, there is not a day that goes by that we don't remember his gorgeous little face and cheeky smile. 

By raising money we are hoping it helps towards meaning no family should ever have to go through what we have.

Ryan had his whole life ahead of him, he was such a character. He had a great love for tools, he wanted to be just like his Daddy. A beautiful sister in Natalie that he never got to meet and all his cousins that we know he would have cared for dearly. Not seeing Ryan grow into the amazing person we know he would have been is the hardest and his Mammy, Daddy, Nanny, Pop, Sister and Aunties want to remember him and how far he would have come with every step we take on September 10th.

So for Ryan and further research for Menigitis please donate, every penny counts.
