I feel really touched by the incredible motivation of Alex. She gave birth to a beautiful little girl just a week before Lexi was born. Alex’s and my sister have been amazing friends since school and I know they were both so excited that their little sisters were having babies at the same time. Although I have never met Alex she has been so supportive of me since Lexi died. She has found motivation in running and weekly posts her park run with hastag #forlexislegacy. This Saturday will be Alex’s 50th park run since the birth of her daughter and she has signed up to put all the training to good use with 10km race. We are truly blown away by how much she has raised in such a short space of time with a month still to go till race day! I include the below from Alex’s JustGiving page. This is what our fundraising is all about. Set your own challenges, it doesn’t matter what others can do it, it is about what you are inspired and motivated to do ❤️Thank you Alex for being Lexi’s first BFF 👯


“It still doesn’t come easy, and each Saturday morning that 5km is still a struggle, but every step Lexi is there, in my mind, in my legs in my motivation, knowing that this 10k would be my goal. 10k is not a marathon. To some, 10k is a warm up, but to me, it’s my marathon. And this marathon, darling Lexi is for you, for your legacy. Every step.”
