Nick, a psychiatrist living in Sheffield with his young family, is running the Manchester Marathon, to raise funds for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. He explained his reasons for taking on the challenge:
“Arthur Rank have provided thoughtful, consistent and adaptive care to a close friend of mine and her family. This has covered everything from activities to creating lasting memories with their young son, help at home, emotional support and practical advice.”
Nick has been training hard for the Marathon, which is now the fourth largest marathon in Europe. He will join the runners on Sunday 16 April 2023 as the route takes in the City Centre, Stretford, Sale, and Altringham before heading back up towards the start and finish line at Old Trafford.
“Early in my friend’s care, the team at Arthur Rank worked hard to enable her a quality of life after initial treatment and as things changed they were quick to change their approach too.”
“The care has been amazing, and it means a lot to me and my family to raise some money to help them continue their work and say thank you for looking after our friends.”
