We're raising as much as we can to beat cancer


We are running the Great North Run 2019 in honour of our very dear friend Sophie Lillywhite. Sophie was a wonderfully kind hearted, beautiful soul who we sadly lost in 2018.

We all met at Newcastle University and will return to where it all began in 2005 to pay tribute to Sophie by running the biggest half marathon in this city that she loved.

As well as running in memory of Sophie we also want to raise money for Cancer Research UK to support research and to try and beat the disease.
