Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Pat was diagnosed with frontal temporal dementia (FTD) in July 2012 and it claimed her life on 22nd July 2017.

I am completing the 8 parkruns (York 12 Aug 2017, Richmond Park 26 Aug 2017, Roundhay 16 Sept 2017, Guildford 28 Oct 2017, Croxteth Hall 4 Nov 2017, Edinburgh 9 Dec 2017, Lancaster 20 Jan 2018 & Tees Barrage 17 Feb 2018) closest to 7 places she lived during her life plus our honeymoon city of Edinburgh, a total 40k to be completed on what would have been our Ruby Wedding Anniversary on 17th February 2018.

Please feel free to join me on any of these runs or have a talk over a post run coffee, I'm the guy in the decorated ARUK T-shirt.

I will be taking each date and recalling something that Pat was doing on the same date in previous years and posting these as updates on this page.
