Lucy Norman GNR for Beacon

Lucy Norman is raising money for Beacon for Rare Diseases

My story

In September I will be taking on my first half marathon in aid of Beacon for Rare Diseases!

Having studied and lived in Newcastle and with The Great North Run being the worlds biggest half marathon it really was the perfect choice for my first! Beacon was also the perfect charity to raise money for and I was pleased to have the opportunity to do it in their name.

I first heard of Beacon when my sister started working for them as a graduate and have since learnt a lot about the important work they undertake.

It’s a lesser known charity working to unite members of the rare disease community, connecting patients and families to share their experiences. Training patient groups to empower them to grow and advocate on their own behalf. Promoting drug repurposing to treat the worlds rarest patients.

Help Beacon to continue spreading knowledge about rare diseases and the resources available to patients and families living with rare diseases by donating to my page.

The worlds biggest half marathon for the worlds rarest patients!

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Beacon for Rare Diseases.

Thank you to everyone who donated! It is really appreciated and I know will make a difference to Beacon and its clients. I finished the GNR in a time of 2:29:11 which I’m pleased with given the heat the hills and a first time effort. 😁🏃🏼‍♀️💪🏻
