Finsbury Park 5 & 10k in Memory of Alex Hubbard


On March 10th a group of friends all took part in the Finsbury Park 5 & 10k in support of the charity CRY. In 2012, our wonderful, warm and vivacious friend Alex Hubbard passed away at the tender age of 21 as the result of an undiagnosed heart condition. Our lives have never been the same, but every year a group of his friends from school gather to do something in his name and raise money for a charity working to prevent this happening to anyone else. The day was wet and VERY windy, but the clouds parted for our run, and amazingly two of our number came 21st and 22nd in the 10k, finishing with amazing times. We raised an incredible £ 1,562.10 from the run alone, and the day was a complete success.
