WAY - Widowed And Young

We provide a peer-to-peer support network to help anyone widowed aged 50 or under


14th May 2023 will mark one year since my husband, Ben, died suddenly in front of my daughters and I, of a heart attack.

He was 39, in good health and truly 'one of the good ones'.

Ben always said I should just get on with it and run a marathon, so here I am!

I'm planning to run the Marathon de la Loire in something around 4 hours. The chilled glass (or 3) of French fizz at the finish line will certainly be pushing me through the last few miles.

Beatrix and Heidi will be cheering me on, and we have a surprise trip to Disneyland Paris booked for after the race.

I'm raising money for WAY as feeling part of a community that includes others who have gone through a similar experience has been so helpful. They are such a supportive group, and I am very grateful to have found friends who can understand and empathise.

Please join me on 14th May in raising a large glass to our Ben.

Thank you so much for your support.
