In memory of

Gill Vickers

Claire’s story: In July I turn 40 (eeek!) and to celebrate this milestone I'm going to be taking part in the Shine Marathon Walk on 23rd September. I'm raising money for Cancer Research UK in loving memory of my wonderful Mum, Gill, who we lost to ovarian cancer in 2009. I intended to do this a few years ago but putting myself through various surgeries to give myself the best chance of being around for my children was the priority! I'm looking forward to using this opportunity to enter middle age in the best shape I can! I’d like to thank my amazing Dad, Stuart for agreeing to take part in Shine with me – you’re my hero!

Stuart's story: My daughter Claire has asked me to join her in walking the Shine Marathon this year as she celebrates her 40th Birthday in July, and raise money for Cancer Research, in loving memory of my wonderful wife Gill, who lost her brave fight with ovarian cancer in 2009.

Thank you in advance for all your support
Claire & Stuart xx

It’s time to SHINE!
