Katie McCall, one of the team members at Manchester Informatics, will be running the Manchester Half Marathon on 15th October to raise funds for Marie Curie UK.
Marie Curie provide support to families caring for someone with terminal illness across the UK. Offering expert care and advice, they help families to make the most of the time they have left together. Last year, they helped more than 50,000 people across the UK by providing trained nursing staff, volunteers, information and support services, hospice care.
Katie says: “Marie Curie have supported my family through some very difficult times. Dorothy, the Marie Curie nurse who helped us, made a massive difference to our lives when she helped to look after my dad and supported my mum.
"It would be brilliant to raise lots of money to give something back to Marie Curie because they provided fantastic support to my family, and they continue to have a huge impact on the lives of other families living across the UK.
"Any donations, big or small, are very much appreciated! Thank you so much.”
