Captain David Seath 5K Memorial Run raises over £1600

Over two-hundred and fifty supporters from the local community joined Captain David Seath’s family to walk, run and dog-jog around Pittencrieff Park, Dunfermline on Sunday 23 April 2017, raising over £1600 in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.

The Captain David Seath Memorial 5K event was organised as a means to commemorate one year since David’s tragic death running the London Marathon, and the distance was chosen because it closely equates to the 3.2 miles David tragically did not finish.

The event was organised by the Gary Seath, the Founder of the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund, who said:

“Today has been both poignant and emotional, but the incredible support from the local community today has contributed to a real sense of solidarity as we commemorate one year since David’s tragic death running last year’s London Marathon. We can’t thank everyone enough for coming along this morning and supporting our work through The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.”

One year on from the tragic events in London, The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has raised over £270,000 and provided financial support to over one-hundred and seventy beneficiaries who have used the funds to rebuild their lives having experienced physical and psychological trauma in service of their country.

Gary continued:

“To have supported over one-hundred and seventy beneficiaries rebuild their lives having experienced physical and psychological trauma in service of their country is very important, and this has only been only possible thanks to the support we have received from the local community and beyond.”
