Nick Rose to run Reykjavik Marathon in support of Captain David Seath Memorial Fund

P1040419We are delighted to announce that Nick Rose (pictured right) will run the Reykjavik Marathon in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund on 19 August 2017.

Nick met David during their time together at Aberdeen University where they shared a house together as well as so many wonderful memories as part of a larger group of friends.

Despite leaving Aberdeen for the various corners of the globe following graduation, a close bond still exists to this day, galvanised further as a result of David’s tragic death.

Nick has successfully completed two marathons in recent times and has very kindly chosen to run his third in David’s memory and in support of his legacy.

Nick said:


“I am very excited to be taking part in the 2017 Reykjavik Marathon and training preparations are in full swing. This will be my third Marathon, each time taking on the challenge in a new and exciting country.

“I am also very proud to be running the Marathon in memory of my close friend Captain David Seath, in support of the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund in collaboration with Help for Heroes. I hope to raise some funds to contribute towards the amazing work the charity does to support wounded, injured and sick personnel & veterans in service of their country. The work of the fund is truly changing and rebuilding lives and your continued support is greatly appreciated!”

The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund raises money to provide financial support to veterans who experienced physical and psychological trauma through Help for Heroes. Since Captain Seath’s tragic death running the 2016 London Marathon, over one-hundred and eighty financial grants have been provided.

Gary Seath said:

“We offer our sincere thanks to Nick for his wonderful gesture in support of David’s legacy and I wish him well in taking on the Reykjavik Marathon in support of the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund. Nick was one of the first of David’s friends to send me a message of support and I am truly grateful for the continued support he has shown my family.

“Thanks to Nick’s commitment to David’s memory, alongside that of other inspirational people across the globe, or work will continue in supporting veterans who have encountered physical and psychological trauma in service of their country.”
