An awesome foursome running for @CRY_UK – @LucyThorpe
We are privileged to have four people running in memory of Tom and Claire in this year’s London marathon. They are Lucy Thorpe, Ben Brown and Juliette and Saul Westbrook.
We’ll be featuring them all on the site this week, ahead of the race on Sunday, April 26.
First up, it’s Lucy Thorpe who writes:
“I am honoured to raise money for CRY with my marathon effort. I don’t like asking for things – least of all money – but I think it would be selfish to pass up the opportunity to transform the personal challenge of running the London Marathon into something more.
“That is why I am telling anyone who asks to donate to CRY after an undiagnosed heart condition robbed a wonderful family of their son. Tom’s mum, Claire, was one of the sparkiest and kindest women I ever met and she campaigned like mad to raise awareness of the issue.”
