Next year’s Brighton Marathon will take place on Sunday 10 April 2022. This wonderful, local event takes in the city’s most striking landmarks, with a route beginning in leafy Preston Park and ending on Brighton’s striking seafront. We are on the look-out for superstar runners to join Team BSUH!
Below we have shared some of the stories from our runners at this year’s event; they may inspire you, or move you to dig out those trainers and sign yourself up! Sign up at: email@example.com, or head to our events page for further info….
Louise decided to run to raise money for the Intensive Therapy Unit at Princess Royal Hospital in #HaywardsHeath. Her decision was made after her Dad received amazing care from the team there two years ago, having been diagnosed with Legionaries’ Disease. Louise said:
“As a family, we were overwhelmed by the outstanding support and dedication of all the staff at the hospital. You constantly find yourself thanking them for all they are doing, yet feel so inadequate and that ‘thank you’ isn’t enough. That is when I decided to do something tangible and show them our gratitude by raising money for the ITU. We are so lucky that my dad is a strong fighter and it was amazing to have him and my mum, along with my husband and children at the finish line of the marathon. My parents are going to be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in November. We will always be indebted to all the staff at the Princess Royal for all they did to save my dad in 2019.”
What a heart-warming story – thank you so much for sharing and taking on such a challenge Louise. We wish you and your lovely Dad all the best.
Russell initially wanted to run the marathon to achieve a personal goal. However, he then also decided he wanted to raise money for a good cause. Unfortunately, he lost his mother three years ago to cancer, but Russell said that the care and support she received from the cancer centre at the Royal Sussex County Hospital #Brighton was amazing. Russell’s Mum also worked at the hospital trust for many years, so he felt BSUH Charity was an ideal charity to raise money for. Russell said:
“It was a phenomenal feeling crossing that finish line. The BSUH Charity team were super supportive, and to run for the hospital that cared for my Mother so amazingly during her battle with cancer was an honour.”
