Duncan Willcocks 2017 London Marathon

Kate

The photo is of my brother Stuart and my sister-in-law Kate on their wedding day in September 2012. A little over a year later their daughter Iris was born.

Following the birth of Iris, Kate suffered from post-natal depression and recovered after a few months in hospital. It was a wake up call to the seriousness of this illness. The charity MIND provided useful publications and advice on the illness.

In March this year we found out that Kate was expecting their second child, but tragically Kate suffered a relapse of the illness and in August Kate passed away. It has left a huge hole in our family and she is very sorely missed.

Despite saying I would never put myself through it again, I have secured a Gold Ballot place for the 2017 London Marathon and I will be running in memory of Kate for my brother Stuart and their daughter Iris. I hope in some small way, me out running in the wet and cold will provide a welcome distraction for Stuart over the coming months.

I will be raising as much as I can for MIND and details of their activities are available via the link on this page.

Any funds you are able to pledge are greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
