Keen runner Ant runs in memory of his sister Joy to raise money for City Hospice who cared for her at the end of her life.

Ant Metcalfe runs for City Hospice in memory of his sister Joy who passed away in June. A keen runner, Ant has set himself an incredible challenge to take part in several races over just a few weeks.

Ant told us:

Joy and Ant

Joy and Ant

My big sister Joy passed away in June after her cancer diagnosis. Towards the end of her life she was supported brilliantly by staff at City Hospice, Cardiff.  I would like to repay some of that support by raising some funds for the Hospice. It’s also an opportunity for me to focus some positivity at this sad time. Also for Joys friends and family to take part in something in her memory.

I have decided to enter a number of 10ks and half marathons in September and October (Bristol 10k, Cardiff bay 10k, Newport 10k, Swansea Half and Llanelli Half), I’m doing these on my own but with support from family

I have always been quite a keen runner but ticking off the three races on consecutive weekends will be a challenge for me (and my knees) and I will be pleased once they are all completed.

City Hospice do such amazing work and I would like to thank all who  have supported me in my fundraising efforts”

Neil Davies, Community Fundraiser said:

“ The challenge Ant has set himself in memory of his sister Joy is incredible and we are truly grateful for his support. We’d like to thank everyone who has donated too. The funds raised will help us continue to provide palliative and end of life care to people in Cardiff. We’d like to wish Ant all the very best in his races from the whole team at City Hospice’.
