Sister’s tribute challenge

Laura Roth ran for Children in Crisis in honour of her brother Nicholas, who died in a climbing accident in Nicaragua in November 2004.

“As a lawyer, my brother did lots of pro bono work to help underprivileged children around the world, so running for Children in Crisis was the obvious choice,” the Finchley resident explained.

“Already being a bit of a gym-goer, it’s the fundraising rather than the exercise that amazed me. To raise so much money for such a worthwhile cause is one of the most humbling experiences of my life.”

She trained for and completed the marathon with her friend Katie Pinnes, finishing together in 6 hours 2 minutes and raising a combined £6,400 for Children in Crisis.
