Story

On 28th August 2021, I will be running 81km in memory of my Nan, Olive Jackson, who sadly passed away in August 2018. I'll be doing the run on the day of her anniversary when she left us. Olive was far more than a grandmother to me - she was a best friend and a second mother who played a big role in my upbringing.

St. Francis hospice provide specialist palliative care to people in advanced stages of cancer, motor neuron disease and HIV/AIDS, as well as support for their families and friends.  They gave fantastic support to my Nan and to my family. I want to do this run as a thank you to them also and raise much needed funds for other people in need. 

The route of my run is to be confirmed but please reach out if you want to join me for any or all of it (if you're insane 😉). Your support is really appreciated!
