Lorna Hopkin proudly shows off her medal
Summit Systems’ Marketing Manager has raised an incredible £8,500 for charity following her participation in the London Marathon on 26th April.
Lorna Hopkin and her brother, Gavin Aiken, ran on behalf of the Lullaby Trust, a charity that supports families affected by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDs).
The charity is close to Hopkin’s heart following the loss of her five-week-old son, Leo, to the condition last year.
“We are absolutely amazed by the generosity of everybody more than doubling our fundraising target. The marathon was incredibly hard but I felt I had no choice but to complete it for Leo and everyone who put their faith into us,” Hopkin explained.
“There were more than a few tears shed by the whole family at the end. We hope the money provides beneficial support to families enduring the pain of SIDS.”
