Blog: Ian’s Great North Run 2021 in memory of Peter Robinson

9th September 2021

Our very dear Ian Robinson is running the The Great North Run this Sunday in order to raise funds for two charities - one being Cairdeas and the other Care for the Family's Bereaved Parents Support.

Here is a message from Ian: The 2020 Great North Run (40th) was meant to be my challenge for last year (my 60th). My 60/40 challenge. However, COVID moved it on a year to my 61st. Last year was also 16 years since my son Peter died, the week after this pic was taken in 2004. He's now been gone longer than he was with us, which somehow feels significant. That year is also the last time I ran a half marathon, so building up to it has been a challenge. So I'd love you to support me in my challenge by supporting one (or both) of my favourite charities. "Cairdeas International Palliative Care Trust" (whom I currently work for) and "Care for the Family's Bereaved Parents Support" (whom I volunteer for, along with Janet, my wife, as a befriender). I've provided more details about these charities on the respective charity pages in my team page along with links to their websites. Thanks so much for supporting me in my 61/40 challenge and supporting those in desperate need who are supported by these two wonderful charities. 

Please check the link for all details, spread the word and help Ian achieve his fundraising goals for the two charities! Good luck for the run, Ian!
