Leah Beth Reek was tragically killed in an explosion and fire
that occurred on Sunday 25th February 2018 alongside Shane, Sean and Mary Ragoobeer. She was an amazing young woman who would have made a difference in this world, she was a positive, kind, beautiful human being who was cruelly taken for no reason other than greed.
It’s difficult to explain to people that didn’t know her just how exceptional she was. Whilst she loved to party like any other teenager (and get her leopard print on!) she also had a side to her personality unlike most typical teenagers, she had a knack of reaching out to people if she saw them struggling or alone. Leah was caring and compassionate and was wise beyond her years. She volunteered at LOROS, which made her determined to become a Palliative Care Nurse and received an unconditional offer to study Nursing at University.
We want to create a living legacy to Leah. Leah’s family, like us, believe that she would have loved to support the following project which keeps women and children save. The Future is Pink project in Sri Lanka is a unique concept of women driving for women in highly visible pink tuk tuks as a taxi service and of course we hope Leah’s will be in her favourite leopard print!
Our first and main challenge will be the Peaks District Ultra
Challenge in July where we will be walking 100K (yep 62.1 miles!) through day and night – blisters for the sisters! We would be very humbled if you could donate to this amazing cause and in memory
of a beautiful, smiley kind young woman that was cruelly taken too soon.
