Great North Run 2024

In memory of my dad Frankie Nevin & Michael Alan Quinn

I am running the 2024 great north run in memory of my dad Frankie Nevin who suffered Asthma his whole life, which contributed to him passing away at 40 years old on 14th December 1990. 

I am also running in memory of my cousins son Michael Alan Quinn who also passed away at just 14 years old on 23rd October 2014 due to this awful condition.


5.4 million people in the uk are affected by asthma so I am dedicating my run not only to my dad Frankie & cousin Michael but to everyone that has been affected or is living with this condition & their families.


Thank you for taking the time to read my story xx
