Meg’s marathon challenge in memory of big brother
A special sister will be going the distance in a marathon run in memory of her big brother, raising money for St Catherine’s Hospice with every step.
Meg Kearns-Page will be taking part in the Manchester Asics Marathon on April 19th, running 26.1 miles around the borough of Trafford – starting and finishing at Old Trafford football ground.
The 24-year-old from Chorley will be raising money for St Catherine’s Hospice and the British Heart Foundation, running in memory of her older brother Dan Page who sadly died in 2011 from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome at the age of just 32. Megan said: “My brother had told me he always wanted to run a marathon so this seems like a great way to raise funds in his memory.
“I thought I should also raise funds for a local charity as he worked as a paramedic in Lancashire and helped many local people. “Giteming up in Preston, I know St Catherine’s is important to many people and the work they do is amazing. I know it costs so much to run the hospice each year and even though I’ve not had any personal connection with St Catherine’s I didn’t want to wait until I’m affected to raise some money on their behalf. “I hope the services they provide will be around for a very long time, and I want to do my bit to show my support.”
