I'm running the Great North Run in memory of my daughter Alice Ruggles who was murdered in Newcastle in October 2016. Alice was beautiful, kind, generous, clever and always making people laugh. She loved her family, her friends, her job and her life. She had everything to live for and we will never recover from losing her. Newcastle was the city she loved and Women's Aid was a charity close to her heart. Running the Great North Run 2017 will help me feel close to Alice and her friends, but more importantly help keep women and children safe. Their mission statement is inspirational. The more people that know about Women's Aid, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
