On Sunday 2 June Area Development Manager for Dawe Brothers Funeral Directors and Abbotsfield Funeral Directors Gill Hedley completed the Cancer Research Race for Life at Hereford Racecourse. Gill laced up her running shoes and took on the route in Hereford which meandered around the perimeter of Hereford golf course and the sports fields, providing the perfect backdrop for the participants.
Alongside her daughter, Gill completed the 5k course in a very respectable 41 minutes and was running in memory of someone special to her.
Gill said :”My dear friend Suzie passed away last July from cancer, and although I haven’t taken part in Race for Life for a couple of years, I wanted to do it this year in her memory. My daughter and I raised over one hundred pounds, and although it absolutely poured with rain the whole time the atmosphere was amazing.”
Gills next challenge will be to take on the 10k course in 2020.
