Jogging for Jake - Mary Dickenson and family 23 August 2016
Mary Dickenson and her friends and family will,be paying for 23 August 2016, and here's Mary telling us why.
Mary Dickenson and her friends and family organised Jogging for Jake in September in memory of Mary’s brother, Jake Thorburn.
‘Sadly my young brother Jake who lost his battle with cancer last July and his last wish was to pass away peacefully at home. My family were able to grant him his wish with the wonderful help of Marie Curie Nurses. I felt the need to give something back to say 'Thank you!’'
Fiona Beaton, Community Fundraiser said ‘Mary has raised an incredible amount in memory of her brother and has chosen to pay for a day at the Edinburgh hospice on 23 August to mark Jake’s birthday. We are incredibly grateful for all the hard work Mary and her family put in to organise this event and the fantastic amount raised.'
