The sister of a Stevenage man who lost his battle with motor neurone disease earlier this year took part in Sunday’s Great South Run in his memory.
Scott Everett was diagnosed with MND in March 2017 and died in July this year, aged just 48, leaving behind his wife Catherine and daughters seven-year-old Anna and five-year-old Evie.
His sister Kerry took two hours nine minutes to complete the 10-mile Great South Run in Southsea, raising more than £1,600 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
She said: "It was a beautiful day - a bit chilly, which is good for running.
"Thank you so much to everyone for your support, donations, words of encouragement and offers to help raise awareness of motor neurone disease.
