On Sunday 28th April 2019 we are proud to have Laura Morris running the iconic London Marathon on behalf of Shrewsbury Town in the Community. This is her story.
Last year Laura’s husband, Paul Morris, was intending to run the London Marathon to raise money for several local charities after being diagnosed with terminal Esophageal and Liver cancer at the end of 2017; wanting to leave a lasting legacy for his family. After smashing his target of raising over £10,000, Paul tragically passed away on the 31st March 2018, before he had chance to take part in the race.
Now Laura will be running the 2019 race in memory of Paul and for their 4 children to leave behind a legacy as he intended. Laura will be running as part of the wider #TeamMoz which was first started by Paul, with members of the team raising money for different charities.
We are delighted that Laura has chosen for all money raised by herself will be donated to Shrewsbury Town in the Community to enable us to carry on helping those in Shropshire reach their potential and achieve their goals, whatever they may be.
One example of this is our Kick Cancer project, which you can find out more about here – Kick Cancer
Laura has set herself the target of raising £1,500. You can help her by clicking here to donate now
