Our defending champion Jenna Challenor will be racing for her dear friend Lettie on Sunday!
“A great friend of mine passed away this past weekend. Her name was Nikki Haynes and she has fought cancer for 3 years. She first picked up a lump when her 3rd baby was 10 months old and they discovered breast cancer. She went through chemo and beat it. The cancer returned about 18 months ago and had spread everywhere. Nikki (Lettie) was the most amazing woman with a zest for life like nothing on earth, She touched the lives of everyone around her. She was one of the bravest and strongest people I have ever known. She is going to be hugely missed. She has left behind an amazing husband and 3 precious children aged 7,5 and 3. It is so heartbreaking.
On Sunday I race for her! She will be in my heart every step of the way. She was always so proud of my running and so encouraging too. A very special friend! Heaven got the most beautiful angel last weekend. “LETTIE with brave wings she flies”
We wish Jenna well for Sundays race!
