Steps superstar, Lee Latchford Evans is supporting the UK’s largest bereavement charity, Cruse Bereavement Care this year in memory of his Dad and Mother-in-Law who both died in 2018.
Lee will be running the ASICS London 10K on Sunday 21st July 2019 with his wife Kerry and many others taking part to raise money for the charity that supports people after the death of a loved one.
Cruse Bereavement Care has charity places available for people who would like to raise money for the charity and run with Lee.
Lee Latchford-Evans said: “I was heartbroken when my Dad suddenly passed last year. He was my hero and I still can’t believe that he is no longer here. My Mother-in-Law, Linda passed just a few months later leaving another huge void in our lives which my wife and I still struggle to come to terms with on a daily basis. If only we could just give them a hug and talk to them again.
“I’m supporting Cruse Bereavement Care because I want to help others, who like me and my wife are grieving. Being able to talk to someone about a loved one is so important and Cruse provides invaluable support for adults, children and young people who have been bereaved.”
Steven Wibberley, Chief Executive of Cruse Bereavement Care, said: “We are delighted Lee has chosen to support Cruse Bereavement Care and is taking part in the ASICS London 10K with his wife. His family have been through an incredibly difficult time and our thoughts are with them.”
The Steps singer will also be talking about his experience of grief in a special ‘Cruse Cares’ podcast episode for Father’s Day. Cruse Cares is a six-episode podcast to mark the charity’s 60th anniversary.
