Running the Virgin London Marathon in Memory of Our Parents


The second Fundraiser Story in our series is from Sue Higgins and you can catch up on the first one here.

After hitting The Big 4-0 ten years ago, Sue enjoyed running the London Marathon so much she thought she’d do it again for her 50th.

Sue’s running in memory of her Dad, Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law, who all unfortunately passed away within 5 weeks of each other. Her whole family miss them greatly and as a way of saying ‘thank you’ for all their support over the years Sue thought the best way would be to run the 26.2miles for them and raise money for Age UK and YouthNet.

The last few months have been tough for Sue and her family but she says the London Marathon and all the training involved to get to the start line has been “something positive to focus on”. She says the training has been very hard but knows it will all be worth it when she crosses the finish line.

To show your support to Sue and help her reach her £2,000 target you can donate at

Go for it Sue!
