I am running the London Marathon 2019 to celebrate the life of my mother Julia who ran the race herself for charity in 1987. Sadly my mother, who was widowed after the death of my father Roger in 2010, fought an immensely brave battle with cancer, but died shortly before Christmas in 2017 at Thorpe Hall Hospice, which is run by Sue Ryder. The staff there were so compassionate towards my mother, sister and me in the most difficult moments that end of life care inevitably brings, and I wanted to give something back and to raise funds for such a worthy cause. Please help me to support this charity and to commemorate my mother’s memory.
Thank you very much,
