Adrienne Smith The Great North Run.


I am doing the Great North Run on Sunday 11th September 2022 to raise money for St Leonard’s Hospice. Helping people with life limiting illnesses and end of life care is something very close to my heart. I want to be a part of such a special organisation that help to enrich the lives of those in need of care whilst helping support their families come to terms with losing a loved one. In 2014 I received the worst news of my life. My mum and best friend was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The following eighteen months showed me just how strong and courageous she was, fighting every day and taking whatever treatment was offered, even though it made her sometimes feel worse, just to prolong her life so that she had those extra months, weeks, days, hours to spend with her family. From the words of the Ed Sheeran song Supermarket Flowers, God really did say hallelujah you’re home when he took her back. She was an angel in the shape of my mum and I was lucky and privileged and proud to have her. My mum was holding my hand when I took my first steps, I was holding hers when she took her last breath and she will be holding my hand as I cross the finish line. I want to raise money for St Leonard’s Hospice because I want to make a difference to the lives of those with life limiting illnesses and for the families who care for them. I am running for my mum, I am running for St Leonard’s Hospice and I am running for everyone who has lost someone they love. If you can afford to please help by sponsoring me to do the Great North Run for such a worthy cause. Together we really can make a difference.
