We are hugely grateful to Angela Jones who ran the gruelling Wales Trail Marathon in June this year and raised funds for the QNI.
Angela ran the marathon for her friend Rachel, who has the incurable condition Motor Neurone Disease. She chose the QNI as ‘I was proud to be running my first marathon in the name of a charity dedicated to improving nursing care at home.’
Angela said of the marathon, ‘I felt an amazing sense of pride and achievement on reaching the finish line. Would I do it again? No, but I will never forget the experience.’ To read Angela's blog in full, please click here.
On Saturday 30 August 2014, Queen's Nurse Anne Smith and her husband John set off on their epic journey cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats - on a tandem! - to raise funds for the QNI.
QN Penny Millington and her friend former nurse Judith Greenwood, completed a fundraising cycle ride for the QNI in August 2013. The race - a 35 km cross country - took place around the countryside of Stockport.
‘We trained three times a week for 5 weeks,’ explains Penny. ‘The race itself went well. We finished in just over 2 hours, it was very muddy as it was all cross country and very hilly. When we finished we were covered in mud!’
