Here’s Liz’s inspiration…
“I am running in memory of my dear friend Ben Cray. Ben passed away on 5th February 2019 after suffering a long-term condition for many years. His last days were spent in the safety of Mount Edgecumbe Hospice in St Austell Cornwall. Although he wasn’t there for long, I know that to Ben and his family, being admitted to the hospice at the very worst time imaginable, brought a lot of relief for them all, knowing that professional, skilled, experienced, compassionate people were there to support and guide them through the most difficult part of their journey.
The hospice has also provided much needed support in the weeks and months that followed Ben’s passing and the family were very grateful for this.
In March 2019, I felt compelled to apply for a marathon place with the charity, as I could see the sadness and devastation that his passing had caused and wanted to turn such sadness into something positive. So here I am, cap in hand, hoping that people that I know will help to support me.”
Thank you Liz and Good Luck!
