Emma & Tricia Boffey are holding a 30k for 30 years event in memory of their brother, Will, who was a past pupil at Brine Leas High School.

They aim to raise vital funds to help beat blood cancer. Emma from Nantwich is training hard to run 30k in memory of what would have been her brother's 30th Birthday on Saturday 19 July. Will sadly passed away in 2007 having contracted acute myeloid leukaemia in 2005. Will was a much loved brother, son and a past member of Nantwich Young Farmers Club.

Emma & Tricia are organising a Celebratory party following 30k for 30 years at Audlem Public Hall from 7pm. Our brother loved a party and he would have definitely celebrated his 30th birthday. For tickets please contact Liz Boffey on 01948 871250 or liz.boffey@btinternet.com

On the morning of the 19th, Emma will be starting her run from Nantwich Swimming Pool. She will run past various places linked with Will, such as the Barony, Brine Leas School, Wrenbury Football club and Audlem Primary School. William was a past BLS pupil and was a keen footballer in the famous Ladsandads League.

Tricia will join Emma for the last 10k finishing up at their family home in Burleydam. Emma & Tricia say: 'It will be an emotional but an amazing run full of many memories of our amazing brother. We hope to raise as much as we can for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, as we don't want anyone else to lose a much loved brother like we did to blood cancer.'

Cathy Gilman, Chief Executive of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, said: "Every penny raised helps us in our mission to beat blood cancer, by stopping people from dying and making patients' lives better. We wish Emma & Tricia the very best of luck and hope the event goes well".
