Hannah Kirk – Manchester Marathon

My name is Hannah Kirk and I will be running my first marathon on 10th April 2016 in Manchester. My wonderful Dad, Bruce Kirk, was a patient at the RICU from 9th February 2016 until 14th February 2016 following a cardiac arrest before he was moved to the cardiology ward, where tragically he passed away on 18th February 2016.

That week in RICU was the toughest week my family and I have ever had to face. My Dad was treated by nurses and doctors who were fantastic and were like angels as they nursed not only Dad but my whole family. RICU gave my Dad the best possible fighting chance of survival.

I had signed up for the Manchester Marathon before Christmas and have recently made the decision to keep training and complete the marathon in memory of Dad and raising money for Revive. I find strength in raising money for such a good charity for equipment and/or training to help others.  If you would like to donate, please see my link below; no donation is too small.
