Heather's Reason to Run

By Heather Ruck

This is my first half marathon, and I'm nervous, but I'm going to do my best. I shall be doing it in memory of my granddaughter Vera and raising money for The Lily Mae Foundation, an excellent charity.

The Lily Mae Foundation is very close to my heart, and Vera will help push me to the finish line.

My daughter, unfortunately, lost her daughter at 21 weeks pregnant. I was with her and her partner, helping support them, they did amazing, and it’s something I wish I could have taken their pain away. They have coped amazingly, and if they can get through the other side of what they have been through, I can do a small thing like this to raise money for a lovely charity.

That is why I'm taking part in the Lincoln City Half Marathon this year.
