Local GP, Dr Lucy Carter of Well Street Surgery, will run her third London Marathon on 22 April this year in support of the Alzheimer's Society.
Lucy’s mother-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimer's a few years ago, “my mother-in-law Evie is a woman of enormous character, energy and the most sociable person I know. She is fiercely independent and yet Alzheimer’s is cruelly punishing her, by taking away those wonderful skills of socialising, making fabulous cakes, taking care of her frail husband, chatting to her friends.”
Lucy is aiming to raise £2000 for the charity who support families in need.
Lucy is a keen runner and enthusiast for fitness - she has been running for over 10 years and this will be her third London marathon for charities. Lucy is a GP with mental health interest so it is fitting to support Alzheimer’s at this time.
Lucy says she’s aiming for a 4 hour marathon if possible but mostly wants to enjoy a fantastic experience in the city she loves. To date her most significate achievements are running the Royal Parks Half Marathon in 1:41 in 2016 and running the London Marathon in 4:16 in 2015.
