Charlotte Hibbs from Finchley ran with all her heart tackling the Bupa 10K race for the second time. This year she ran the race in memory of her grandfather who was cared for by North London Hospice. Charlotte said: “My Grandpa stayed at the North London Hospice at the end of 2007 before he died of cancer. Even though I was only 10 when he died, I was very close to him, and the Hospice was a great comfort to my family through such a hard time. I wanted to raise money for `North London Hospice’ so that others in the future can have the lovely support the Hospice gave my family. “It was a great experience. I ran too quickly at the beginning which made most of the run tiring but I was proud that I managed to stay at a such a good speed. Then I saw my family and friends which completed the exciting experience. “I do run 10k regularly at a steady pace, so the most challenging part was just trying to be fast! However thinking about why I was running in the first place powered me through. ”Everyone has been so generous in sponsoring me. I shared my donation page on Facebook and texted my friends and family. Everyone was very supportive of me and the Hospice, I feel so grateful to have such supportive people in my life.” If you would like to register on any of or challenge events go to: http://www.northlondonhospice.org/fundraising/challenge-yourself/
