Running group to take on the London Marathon


A RUNNING group made up of police officers, PCSOs and retired police officers is to run next year’s London Marathon in aid of two charities.
Five-0 Runners was set up in 2016 to help with people’s physical fitness, well-being and mental fitness and has raised money for a number of charities over the last few years.
Now two members, Grappenhall and Thelwall PCSO Sharon Perrie and retired PC Tony Davidson are to run the marathon to support Jessie May, a children’s hospice-at-home service and two others, PC Chris Davis and PC Gary Geoghegan will run for the Lupus UK charity, which supports people suffering from an incurable illness affecting the immune system.
A spokesperson for Five-0 Runners said: “Our group was set up to encourage people to get out and enjoy running and the company of others.
“It is very easy to feel alone and isolated in the job that we do but with our running group it is a way to help make sure that does not happen. We are a free group that welcomes everyone that wishes to be part of something.
“Over the last few year’s we have raised money for different charities including stick n’ step, children’s cancer, Adam foundation (knife crime awareness charity) as well as many mental health awareness. Now on the April 26, 2020, four of our runners are doing the London Marathon together.
“We have decided to run for two charities. Jessie May provides vital end-of-life care, emotional support and bereavement support for terminally ill children and their families.
“Lupus is a charity for people suffering with an illness affecting the immune system which may then affect any part of the body. It can be triggered in various ways and 90 per cent of people who are affected are female, although men and young children can also be affected.
“We hope to attract support such as cash donations, vouchers or raffle prizes which we can offer to the running community.
“We will display sponsor details on our running tops and hope to be interviewed by the media to promote any companies that have donated.
“Any support will be highly appreciated by us and our chosen charities.
