Laura's Story

I run the Great North Run for my sister Em, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of just 21. Never in a million years did I think I would be able to run, let alone a half marathon... now twice! Back in 2020, I couldn't even run 1k without stopping, but knowing that I was doing it for Em gave me so much strength. She is my inspiration every single day. I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved, not just physically but also raising money to help other families going through the same thing.”
