Christine and family take on Leeds 10k

Christine and family take on Leeds 10k

Mon 05 July

Our trustee Christine Osmond is taking on the Run For All Leeds race this September to raise money for YBTC!

This year our trustee Christine Osmond and her family are taking on the Run For All Leeds 10k on Sunday 5th September to raise money for YBTC!

Christine said: “In March this year I turned 21… I wish! Plus 49. Yes, I am 70. My birthday was going to be a celebration with my family and friends, but Covid put a stop to that. Rather than being negative about the situation, I decided that I should do something positive that would benefit others.

"With that in mind, I am going to complete the Leeds 10k this September, with my daughter-in-law Julie Blackburn and my sister-in-law Elaine Lowe. Thank you both for joining me! We will be completing the 10k in fancy dress, calling ourselves the St Trinny Oldies.

“This charity is very close to my heart, ever since I lost my husband nearly 14 years ago with the most aggressive brain tumour, I have fundraised and supported this wonderful charity. Every penny raised goes towards research and supporting patients and their carers.”

The race, which takes place across Leeds City Centre, is the legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson, who took on a series of endurance challenges to raise almost £2 million for charity while battling terminal cancer.
