Nick’s Brilliant Big Fun Run Manchester

On Sunday, Nicholas Trimble completed Big Fun Run Manchester – raising money for Cancer Research UK. 

In 2009, Nick’s dad tragically passed away after battling lung cancer. A year later Nick ran the New York Marathon in memory of his late father. 

“I flew up to New York to run the NYC marathon in 2010 for him, as we had joked about doing it years ago before he left. It was an awesome event that I loved, and that I managed to do it all alone!”

Nick has always been a keen runner but sadly has been unable to run since a tragic car accident left him in a wheelchair. 

“I became very disabled when I was run over whilst I was living in London with my girlfriend. I was a full on runner 10 years ago this year.”

Nick has been determined to get back involved in events.  Big Fun Run Manchester was his first event since his car accident and he was delighted with how it turned out.

“It was very difficult, but I competed with many thanks to my girl Lynsey! She was my care person for yesterday.”

Nick’s fundraising has gone better than expected – he has “smashed it” but there is still time to donate to a great cause.
