On Sunday 20th May, Michelle McGuffin, from Watford, and her two sons, Ethan and Cameron, will be joining over 900 people for Peace Hospice Care's Watford Colour Run.

Michelle and her sons are running in memory of her best friend, Jane Martin-Dye, who died at the Hospice's Inpatient Unit in February 2017.

Jane faced a three and a half year battle with breast cancer before being cared for by Peace Hospice Care. Michelle said: "I saw Jane almost every day. She was wonderful in too many ways to describe: kind, funny, thoughtful, full of fun and always had time for others. She was so brave and never dwelled on her pain - I'll never forget her amazing strength.

"My sons also spent a lot of time with Jane. My youngest son went to nursery with Jane's daughter and she used to look after him when I was at work. I wanted them to feel they can get involved and do something in her memory, so we signed up to the Watford Colour Run. We're looking forward to doing something fun and to help support our local charity - we think Jane would have loved it."

The 5k family fun run takes participants around Aldenham Country Park, including a visit to the Winne the Pooh Hundred Akker Wood. This year a foam zone has been added to the route.

Anyone interested in taking part in the Watford Colour Run is urged to sign up soon as spaces are limited. To sign up click here or email: events@peacehospicecare.org.uk
