GREAT NORTH RUN - SUNDAY, 10TH SEPTEMBER 2017

 

TRACY WAKEFIELD is a very good friend to OUCH(UK) and is all set to wear our colours again in her 2nd GNR for us. Tracy (photos below of GNR 2016) is neither a sufferer or a supporter of a sufferer but decided to help us raise awareness and funds to help the charity after learning about cluster headaches and the associated problems that accompany the condition. She does a great job of this and every penny raised helps towards the cost of keeping our website up to date (an invaluable source of information to sufferers, supporters, health care professionals, plus friends & employers) running our vital helpline support, putting together our informative conferences, producing our CHit CHat magazine and printing costs of our booklets, leaflets and posters for awareness purposes.

Thank you Tracy, your support is much appreciated!

GOOD LUCK FOR SUNDAY TRACY!! STEPPING ON GLASS AND ENDING UP WITH A POISONED TOE HASN'T DETERRED YOU. WHAT A FANTASTIC  FRIEND TO OUCH YOU ARE - WE'RE SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE YOU!

GO TRACY!!!

With Tracy's kind permission, here's a few photos of her inspiring the next generation of her family - her nephew Robbie in his first ever 5k in a time of 48.17.

Excellent Tracy!  Well done - watched the whole race on TV cheering you on, but so difficult to spot someone you know amongst 43,000 odd runners.

 

Thank you so much for doing this for OUCH.

She did great Val! Official time of 2:47:32. Knocking 5 mins 29 secs off her previous best. She informed me afterwards that she's doing the Great South Run for us next month and also the Brighton Marathon in April. What a girl...!

Can't wait to get the photos so I can post them.
