Myself and my Santander friends and colleagues (Nick Harvey - Bain, Simon Church, Colin Cooper, Ben O'Donegan and Bob Gregitis) are running 20 Miles, 200 obstacles in May 2020. This is classed as the toughest obstacle race in the UK and we are running it in memory of my lovely mum Maureen Kenney who sadly left us on 17th January 2019 after a short battle with cancer.
It came as a shock in September 2018 when mum and dad turned up at my house one evening and told me, my wife and son she had been diagnosed with cervical cancer. A few weeks later we were also given the awful news that mum also had breast cancer. Whilst dad did absolutely everything he could to look after mum at home, mum was admitted to Willen Hospice on Thursday 10th January 2019. We all spent every minute we could at the hospice during that week until mum was sadly taken from us at 12:05 on Thursday 17th January. Words can’t describe the kindness, care and dignity shown to mum during her final days at Willen I will never forget them (simply amazing kind people there). I have set up this fundraising page and already shared on social media all sponsorship however small would be truly appreciated. I loved my mum so very much and life will never be the same without her xxx
