About this cause

About our cause

Well a few weeks ago, My life long friend Paul Regan knocked my front door whilst he was out training and said how he had many fond memories of Steve and our family. I was truly humbled when he told me he was going to do the Coventry half marathon and raise funds in honour of our Steve who some will know was a championship runner in his day and for those that did not know you know do!!!!. I consulted both my Mum and Dad regarding Pauls visit and one has to say there were a few tears not the first and certainly not the last shed over Steves sudden and totally unexpected depature a few years ago. The wounds are still fresh for us as a family and it is very comforting that people still think of him. My mum has always said she would like a bench at Steve's graveside so she could sit and talk to him when she goes up there, A sentiment which is shared by many, I'd like to think we can all sponsor Paul and raise enough money for a bench and any remainder going to a local charity. I feel a bench paid for by many different people in sponsorship will be much better than say me just buying it, as it is the thought that so many will have contributed to "Steves Bench" will mean so much to those who knew him.
