On Sunday Catherine Munro will tackle the second of two momentous challenges in a month, which has raised over £1800 in support of the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund so far.
Having run a 50km ultra marathon on 01 May, Cath is swapping her trainers for cleats and cycling 160km (100 miles) in the RideLondon100 event.
It’s been a busy month for Cath and her family, with her young children also running and cycling impressive distances. Not to be left out, while Cath is cycling down south this weekend, her children will cycle a specific challenge of their own. Please keep your fingers crossed for no punctures!
“We will be doing these events in support of the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund. Dave and I met in halls on Day 1 at Aberdeen University; we went on to work together, live together and have a whole lot of fun together! A guy so full of verve, humour, energy and cheekiness, he was simply a joy to be around.
“He chose the military as his career, and his grit and determination saw him become an officer in 29 Commando Regiment. Tragically, while running the 2016 London marathon to raise money for Help for Heroes, Dave collapsed at the 23 mile mark and died. The gaping hole that he left in so many people’s lives has been impossible to fill, and six years on the loss is still as raw as ever.
“Dave’s passion for helping veterans was evident in his life and his legacy lives on through the Memorial Fund that his family set up in his name. The Fund provides financial grants to service personnel through Help for Heroes and has so far raised a phenomenal £330,000 and counting.
“I would like to do my bit to help veterans and their families, which is why I have chosen to raise funds in Dave’s memory. I know that his cheeky smile and glinting eye will spur me on when I’m needing it most.”
