Raising Money for Mummy's Star

Updated: Jan 9, 2019

Commercial Manager, Melanie Wood, ran the Wigan 10k in memory of her best friend, Gaynor, who passed away from breast cancer after an 18 month battle.

Gaynor, 36, was diagnosed several days after her 20 week pregnancy scan with her second daughter. During this difficult time, a charity called Mummy's Star, who offers support to cancer patients who are pregnant or have young children, were an essential outlet for Gaynor and the girls.

Melanie, along with Gaynor's husband, Andy, ran the Wigan 10k in her memory and raised £790 for the charity which will make a big difference to people in such difficult situations.
