Patient Prompts Nurse To Run Marathon
12:04am 6th October 2013
A conversation with a patient has inspired a Dorset nurse to run a marathon today.
Karen Samuel works at the Trimar Hospice in Weymouth.
When one of the patients she cares for told her they regretted never running a marathon, Karen decided to take on the challenge herself.
She's taking part in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival today, raising money for Weldmar.
Karen can be sponsored online at www.justgiving.com/run-kazzsam-run or sponsorship can be taken into Trimar Hospice in Weymouth, where there are sponsorship forms.
Karen said, "Every donation helps, no matter how small, so please help me raise money for this very worthy cause".
