Monique walks in memory of her Dad
Monique participated in memory of her Dad, Andrew, who she lost unexpectedly in July 2021.
“My dad (52) would run and cycle regularly, yet with no warning signs, he passed away from a heart attack.” she says
“Soon after his passing, I saw MyMarathon being promoted. I thought it was a great opportunity to drive awareness and a good way to cope with my grief. I wanted other people to know they were not alone.”
“My dad would not believe what I was doing, I know he would have been laughing at the thought of me completing a marathon!”
