2013 Leeds Half Marathon Finisher Medal

2013 Leeds Half Marathon Finisher Medal

“Never having ran since school (20 odd years ago), I decided to run a half marathon in May 2013 having signed up January 2013. To motivate me I signed up to get sponsorship for St. Gemma’s hospice. With the fantastic support of my family and friends I managed to run the half marathon in 2 hours 26 minutes and raised nearly £1000 but the reason for running was because my dad passed away from a brain tumor a few years ago plus my mother in law was stood by the side of the road cheering me on when I was running this half marathon, but on 31 Dec 2013 she was diagnosed with a brain tumor and passed away in March 2014. This medal means challenges, family, friends and going for what you want as you never know what is around the corner.”
