“I think about James when I run. I often wear my Diabetes vest at races. It is a conversation starter and lots of people ask why I wear this. So, for me, running for Diabetes UK gives me the opportunity to keep his memory alive.”
Lucy runs marathons in memory of her brother James and has done so for several years in various events, always fundraising for Diabetes UK. She shares memories of James, who was diagnosed with type 1 when he was just 28, along with her running journey, ahead of taking part in the Great North Run for Diabetes UK.
