Fenland athlete to raise money for British Heart Foundation following death of team-mate
A FENLAND athlete is set to begin raising money for the British Heart Foundation in honour of her team-mate who died of a heart attack.
Amanda Boldy, 24, from Mayfly Close, Chatteris, and her fellow Bushfield Joggers’ runners were left devastated after Rob Davys, 53, died during last year’s Great Eastern Run in Peterborough.
Ms Boldy has organised a charity Zumbathon in July and will tackle the Great North Run in September to raise funds for the foundation.
She said: “Rob’s death was completely unexpected - it was a big shock and huge loss to both his family and the club.
“As a club we continue to do everything we can to raise money for this great cause in his memory.”
