Head of finance runs 1,000 miles and raises over £1,000 for Macmillan

Emma Dallos, Head of Finance at Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust (SCFT) is celebrating by raising £1,060 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Emma says “At the beginning of 2018 I set myself a goal to run 1,000 miles to celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS and to raise money for Macmillan. I wanted to give something back to Macmillan to thank them for all the invaluable support they gave me when both my parents were diagnosed with terminal cancer.”

During the year Emma runs have included the Brighton half marathon, Brighton marathon, Gatwick half marathon, Reigate half marathon, Bright10 and the Great South Run. She also completed park runs in Copenhagen and Belfast whilst on holiday. Emma successfully completed her 1,000 mile on New Year’s Eve.

On completing her goal Emma said “I was surprised that my husband and friends came out to meet me at the ‘finish line’ with champagne & flowers! What a great way to finish off the year.”
