Berlin Marathon in loving memory of Grandad

Rachel Walker, Sean Collum

My page:


Thank you for visiting our fundraising page!

Sean and I completed the Berlin Marathon on 25th September. It was very hard and the day was very emotional but we did it! I completed the marathon in 6:05:31, a lot slower than I had anticipated but I ran the whole way and I finished it! Speedy Sean completed it in 3:28:51, an amazing achievement!!

We ran for the British Heart Foundation in memory of my amazing Grandad who passed away in February. Even though we have completed the marathon, we are still raising money for this amazing charity. 

As you all know, my Grandad meant the world to me and had lived with me, my mum and brother for 16 years of my life, spoiling me, caring for me and having a laugh and sharing interests with me.

My Grandad had heart disease, which didnt impair his life at all but was ultimately the cause of his departure.

He told me, when i entered the marathon that he would sponsor me 'a penny a mile'; please be as generous as my Grandad and sponsor us for this wonderful charity which will hopefuly find ways to cure heart disease.

Thank you!
