nick ball marathonLast year Nick ran with his youngest daughter Jessica. This year his eldest daughter Nicola expressed an interest in running. They therefore agreed that all 3 would run in this year’s event.

Nicola ran in support of “Parkinson’s UK” as her Granddad (Nick’s father in Law) was suffering from it. Jessica ran in aid of Dementia UK as Nicks Mum had suffered with this.

At short notice Nick decided to support the Primrose Foundation (A local breast cancer support charity) as a close friend has been recently diagnosed with breast Cancer. His hope was this would provide a crumb of comfort at a difficult time for the family.

Nick trained with them at least twice a week from Boxing day onwards.

They stayed together for the whole 13 miles (Nick remaining slightly in front for the duration). They successfully completed the run in 2hours 45minutes and have raised nearly £1000 to date.
