FOCUS on Fundraising: Kew Gardens Half Marathon

Sunday March 31st 2024

Another exciting run to fundraise for the trust!

Em Cockshutt and Dan Barnes took part in the Half Marathon, fundraising for the Trust.

“We both met Joe through Warwick University Lacrosse (Lax) and he was a great runner/sportsperson, often running half-marathons and triathlons on top of playing lax, smashing his degree and his social life!

One of Em’s fond memories of Joe was encountering him in his third-year kitchen cooking a four-person lasagne to enjoy in the bath as a reward for a casual Thursday night half-marathon around Leamington 😂. For Dan, being in the year below, Joe was the most welcoming person when he joined Lacrosse, taking him under his wing.”


Good mates – Em and Joe at University of Warwick

They raised over £1750 for the Trust. As Em said ‘it was an Easter Sunday well spent with amazing friends in memory of another amazing friend, Joe Harris’. Em was delighted with her time of 2 hours 9 minutes and has decided to keep training to break the two-hour mark in the near future. Dan Barnes was delighted with his time of 1 hour 45 minutes and the money raised in memory of his former lacrosse teammate, Joe.

There is still time to show your support to Em and Dan with a donation to their their JustGiving page
