Inspired by the Hospice care a dear family friend received, Catrin signs up for a marathon challenge.

Catrin Morgan originally from Criccieth, will run 13.1 miles at the Royal Parks Half on Sunday, October 13th then double her efforts to complete 26.2 miles at the Manchester Marathon Sunday, April 5th in 2020.

Speaking about her reasons for running Catrin, an Occupation Communications Lead said:

“I turned 30 this year and a marathon was one thing on my to-do list so I’m looking forward to ticking this off next year and for a really great cause.

“We sadly lost my mum’s best friend, a very dear family friend and all-round truly wonderful person, Caroline Smith, to cancer on September 17th 2017.

“Having visited Auntie Caroline at St David’s Hospice it was incredible to see the care she was given, and the loving support given to all her family and friends.

“I know the care she was given meant so much to my mum and our whole family. This has stuck in my mind and since then I’ve wanted to do something to fundraise and the marathon seemed to be the perfect opportunity.

“I think the work the Hospice does is amazing, and having spent only a few hours there and experienced first-hand some of the wonderful staff and care offered, I know the money will go towards fantastic support to other families.”

Catrin will be raising funds for St David’s Hospice and also for the young people’s charity EY Foundation. To support Catrin in her efforts and make a donation visit: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/CatrinMorgan6
