In Memory of Sue Salmon

18/07/1961 to 12/09/2016
Sue was a devoted mother to Alex, and a loving wife and partner of 35 years to Andy, along with being a generous and warm hearted friend and colleague to many. She had a great many interests in life from her passion toward live theatre and the arts, to her lifelong love of Brighton and Hove Albion football club and support for the Scotland rugby team. She enjoyed seeing the world through foreign travel, but also loved socialising with friends and colleagues - particularly if there was a quiz involved! She lived a full and energetic life, and her natural warmth and companionship is missed all the more with her untimely passing.

It would make her proud that her legacy, in part, is to provide some assistance to other women going through similar trials to herself.

Fundraising in memory of Sue Salmon

Start fundraising
Torben Jessen's Great North Run for Sue has raised £65.00 so far

I first met Andy and Sue when we were working in London in the late 1980s. We became good friends, and Andy was my Best Man when I married Caroline in 1993. I remember Sue for her love of life and great company. It breaks my heart that she is no longer with us.

Andy was due to take part in the Great North Run last year, to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. Before he could start he had to return to Edinburgh, and Sue died from Cancer shortly afterwards. Sue, Andy and their son Alex received great support from Breast Cancer Care

Andy and friends will be taking part in the GRN on 10th September, raising money for Breast Cancer Care. I have run several races over the past year. The GRN will be my first supporting a charity. Please donate to Breat Cancer Care, so that others can benefit from their support.

Joel Pearson running in Memory of Sue has raised £475.00 so far In my view, the most important things in life are friends, family and the experiences we have shared over the years. Good friends span decades. I have known Sue and her husband Andy since our University days at Manchester, and have very fond memories of the fun times we have shared together. Sadly Sue passed away last year after a long battle with Cancer. A few days before Andy was about to start the Great Northern Run in aid of Breast Cancer, he received an urgent call to come back to be by Sues bedside before she passed away. At the funeral a group of us decided to run with Andy in this years race in Sues memory. As a non runner, competing in my first Half Marathon seemed like a good idea at the time. However, as we get nearer to the race and my training distances increase, my body is shouting What are you doing to me you idiot! So please make the pain worthwhile, dig deep and support this amazing cause. Many Thanks,Joel More
Tim Evans, running in Memory of Sue Salmon has raised £13,439.20 so far

Thanks for taking the time to consider supporting my charity effort.

Sue Salmon, a good friend from my Manchester University days, passed away last year after a long battle with cancer. She fought very bravely throughout to try to beat the disease. She was taken from us far too young.

Sue is survived by her husband Andy, a very close friend and their only son Alex, a very bright 14 year old, who I am proud to have as a godson.

Although Sue's battle was a difficult one towards the end, she, Andy and Alex were given great support by Breast Cancer Care over the last few years. This support continues.

A few days before Sue left us, Andy was in Newcastle at the start line of the Great North Run, aiming to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. Minutes before the start he took a call that he needed to return urgently to Edinburgh and Sue passed away shortly after he returned. Although thwarted on that occasion, Andy, along with several close friends, decided that this year we would join forces to raise funds for this extremely good cause. These efforts will culminate with us all attempting the Great North Run in September 2017.

Prior to that, I shall be attempting to complete the London Marathon in April and I'll need all the support I can get!

So, if you feel able to support my efforts at the London Marathon and the Great North Run this year, I would be very, very grateful. Although I have run in many races over the years, the Marathon is a daunting prospect and this is the first occasion I have decided to raise money for charity. Rest assured it will go to a great cause and the money raised will help provide support to many people in their very personal battles with cancer.

Thanks again for your support,

Tim

Karen Benson's GNR has raised £620.00 so far

Thank you for taking the time to consider supporting my charity effort.

I had the privilege of knowing Sue Salmon for a short 8 years through Kerry; Sue & her husband Andy have been good friends of Kerry’s for over 30 years. Sue passed away last year after a long battle with Triple Negative breast cancer. She fought very bravely throughout to try to beat the disease. She was taken from us far too young.

Sue is survived by her husband Andy, and their only son Alex, a very bright 14-year-old, who is Kerry’s godson.

Although Sue's battle was a difficult one towards the end, she, Andy and Alex were given great support by Breast Cancer Care over the last few years. This support continues even now.

Last year Andy was in Newcastle at the start line of the Great North Run, aiming to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. Minutes before the start he took a call that he needed to return urgently to Edinburgh and Sue passed away shortly after he returned. Although thwarted on that occasion, Andy, along with several close friends, decided that this year we would join forces to raise funds for this extremely good cause. These efforts will culminate with us all attempting the Great North Run on 10th September 2017 virtually a year to the date Sue passed away.

I only started running last year to get fitter & lose weight, my 1st competitive event was the Leeds 10k this July as part of my training programme for the GNR. I was shocked to work out that the training programme means I will run an average of 19 miles a week a total of 300 miles. The course is 13.1 miles long and hilly so I should need to add in hill practise; fighting gravity is a struggle both mentality and physically but a challenge I have had to overcome.
Not only I’m I going to personally achieve a goal by running the GNR but hopefully raise money for this amazing charity all in Sue’s name. The day itself I’m sure will be very emotional in many ways and I will need to remember my breathing. My hope is in some small way we help to assist the research efforts already under way to find a cure for this horrible disease, and give hope to the thousands of women and their families who are suffering because of it.


Thanks again for your support,
