A GREAT North runner


Sharing a picture of my son, Brian, shortly after completing the Great North Run 2018.

He took just over 2 hours and raised quite a bit money for British Lung Foundation.

Feeling very proud, but also a little emotional, because if you can read the back of his shirt, it says 'I'm running for ''me Mam'' (braver than I'll ever be)'.

Well done Brian and everyone else who ran along side him.

Lovely, generous son.

Well done Brian. Marigold you must be so proud of him, as he obviously is of you. I found his words very moving and loved the ‘me mam’ being a northern lass. Does he still have a Just Giving page open for BLF?
