We’d like to say thank you to our fundraiser of the week Alice who will be running the London Marathon in 2019 in memory of her best friend Katie, who passed away in 2015.
“The charity helped her lots throughout her life. Ever since, family and friends have taken part in fundraising activities, doing at least one activity per year… I have been harbouring a dream to run the London Marathon and being able to do it in memory of Katie would only make it much more fun!" says Alice.
“Although Katie is no longer with us, many children, teenagers and adults are dealing with an M.E. diagnosis. This can be especially difficult for young adults, missing out on key events both in school and socially. Being able to support a charity that helps individuals like Katie cope with their diagnosis and make plans for their future is a very humbling opportunity.”
We wish Alice the best of luck for her marathon and would like to thank her for supporting us through such a noble cause.
