Simon’s Story

12 Feb, 2016 Sheffield

Hi I’m Simon, a friend of Diane and I have decided to run the Sheffield Half Marathon this year to raise money for the Foundation.

Although I have been lucky and none of my immediate family have suffered with this dreadful disease My wife’s family and some close friends have been affected by it. In fact only yesterday a friend at work passed away at a very young age having fought against it. I met Di Barnett at a boot camp that we both attend and over the months became friends and we spoke about Daniel his fight and what the foundation is hoping to achieve in his memory. I believe that for the families of people that lose their battle happy memories are so important. The foundation will help people make some of those memories to remember their loved ones. I have seen how the people at the foundation work tirelessly to raise funds and as such if I can make a slight difference by raising money then I will be very proud to do so.
