A team of 24 friends and family has raised more than £2,000 for Brain Tumour Support by completing the 10km Wolf Run in honour of Tracy Webb who sadly died of a brain tumour in 2016.
The team included Tracy’s husband, son, sister-in-law and son-in-law, as well as Louise Tully our Support Worker for Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
“Tracy and I were best friends for 28 years,” said Louise. “I ran in her memory but also in memory of my Mum who died of a brain tumour 23 years ago. Back then brain tumours were almost unheard of, but today, with charities such as Brain Tumour Support on the scene, awareness and support is improving.”
The 10km Wolf run was a huge challenge to all involved. “We ran through forests made of muddy ice rinks, got stuck in stinky mud sucker bogs, waded through black sludgy rivers, crawled through dark tunnels, whizzed down water slides and climbed over horribly high obstacles. It was a massive challenge for us all, but nothing in comparison to what many of our patients and families go through every single day,” said Louise. “I know Tracy would be very proud of us all.”
We're hugely grateful for the effort and commitment shown by the whole team, and their fundraising page is still accepting donations if you would like to help add to their wonderful total - https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/WednesdayNightWolves1
