Ashleigh ran the 2023 London Marathon in aid of St Giles Hospice as a thank you for the care they provided to her mum, Sue, in 2018. She said:
“Choosing to run the London Marathon was always more than just a physical challenge – it was for Mum, and in her memory, raise funds to say thank you to the wonderful nurses and volunteers at St Giles Hospice. They did so much for her and my family during her final few days, it really was exceptional care. St Giles gave my mum hope. During the most stressful time of our lives, they were just fantastic.
“When someone gets given a terminal diagnosis, it’s the most frightening feeling in the world. We couldn’t take that fear away as a family, but St Giles gave my mom a space where she could meet other people who were going through same situation, and also a place where she could get hope and comfort and to have transparent conversations.
“There are lots of people locally, like me, in their 20s who might have lost a parent and don’t know where to turn. I want to share my story so other people know that St Giles are there for bereavement support.
“Taking on a run in aid of St Giles is a fantastic way to fundraise and help fund care for other families like mine. Running is free, anyone can do it and it has so many health benefits! If you set a goal and put your mind to it you can take on any running challenge!”
