Tom Harling – London Landmarks Half Marathon

Tom Harling ran  the London Landmarks Half Marathon,  raising £650 to be shared between the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) in East Kent and The Pilgrims Hospice.

In Tom’s words

“A good friend of mine, John Rawlins was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND)and this lead to him having to give up work around a year ago now. The disease is similar to the ‘Stephen Hawking thing’ and there is no cure.

………………….Tom Harling……….. John Rawlins………

John worked all his life on building sites as a digger driver from Westgate, and been a good friend of mine for the best part of 10 years. I ran the London Landmarks Half Marathon on 25th March 2018  to raise money to split 50/50 between the MNDA East Kent charity and The Pilgrims Hospice in memory of my friend John who was an absolute legend of a man who despite MND  managed to keep his sense of humour and comical outlook on life.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and thanks for your donations and support.”
