Running the Big Half in support of Cherry Lodge – please sponsor Sarah @ Big Half route
Mar 4 all-day
Running the Big Half in support of Cherry Lodge - please sponsor Sarah @ Big Half route | United Kingdom

On Sunday 4th March 2018, Sarah Finlay will be taking part in a new London half marathon to raise money for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care’s much needed services for people affected by cancer. Please sponsor her via her Virgin money fundraising page.

Sarah is raising money in memory of Tim Yonel, a former member of Cherry Lodge. In her words:

“Tim was an amazing young man, clever, talented, funny and caring – he was also my nephew’s best friend. They went through Beavers and Cubs together with their goal being NOT to be awarded the achievement/activity badges that others were desperate to gain – they achieved this goal with flying colours!

Tim was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 23 while on a gap year in Sydney, Australia before starting out on his career path. He sadly lost his fight with this cruel disease in May 2016 at the age of 30. Cherry Lodge played a valuable part in supporting Tim’s family while they cared for him during his illness.”

The Big Half is a new London half marathon event created by the organisers of the London Marathon. As well as sponsoring Sarah and helping raise funds for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care, you might like to go down to Greenwich on the day to spur Sarah on and enjoy the Vitality Big Festival. This will be an exuberant celebration of London’s diverse culture, with food and music in Greenwich Park throughout the day.
