I will be running the 10K RunThrough Heaton park event on October 10th in honour of my great grandpa Gerry who recently passed away.
Grandpa lived at Heathlands Village, and I used to visit him regularly before Covid. Grandpa had dementia and he didn’t remember much but we were always very close and it was so hard to say goodbye.
I miss him every day. I miss sitting with him and holding his hand, telling him about what I had done in school. I miss singing his funny songs and sitting in the café with him and all my family talking about all the funny things he used to say and do.
I feel very grateful to everyone who took such good care of him and that is why I want to raise money for The Fed.
Please please donate as much as you can and I promise I will run as fast as I can for my great grandpa Gerry.
