‘Be More Nulty’ runners raise more than 15k for charity
Amongst the runners at last weekend’s Sheffield Half Marathon were a team consisting mostly of Sheffield’s music industry and members of the late Sarah Nulty’s family, running to raise money for Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care.
The runners smashed their target of £10k and including gift aid donations, they have raised a staggering £15k. The fund raising has not stopped, donations can still be made via the My Donate page.
Sarah Nulty was director at Tramlines Festival from 2013 – 2018, and sadly passed away at the age of 36 just weeks before she saw her hard work become a reality in the festival’s 10th anniversary event. Sarah was instrumental in the launch of Tramlines in 2009, coordinating venues and handling bookings and later working in the commercial department. Tenacious, innovative and thoroughly unbreakable, Sarah led Tramlines through its toughest and most pivotal times.
Sarah’s family and friends felt moved to raise money for these two charities in recognition of the work they did for Sarah and in the hope that they may provide for cancer sufferers in the future. Donations were also generated for Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care during the festival last year. The combined total raised is now nearly £45k.
Sarah’s friend and colleague Tim Walker said: “We made it and everyone should feel so proud of this achievement. This run was about bringing people together. It’s testimony to lasting positive effect that Sarah had on the people who she was connected to. We hope we can continue to be inspired by Sarah in the future and continue to do good work in her name.”
Speaking of their support community fundraiser at Weston Park Cancer Charity Jade Hearsum said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who joined the #BeMoreNulty Tramlines team for the Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday. The route is a particularly challenging one and even though some of the team wouldn’t describe themselves as runners, they all did amazingly well and crossed the finish line with pride.
“With every step, they’ve raised thousands of pounds to support local cancer patients and their continued support in memory of Sarah is truly inspirational. With their help, we can ensure that cancer patients across the region continue to access the very best cancer care services.”
