Katie’s 30th Birthday Virtual Hospice Walk in Memory of Pal, Nathan

25 Jun 2021

When Katie Whitby’s good friend, Nathan Mclean turned 30 in December 2015, the pair never got their chance to celebrate his big birthday as the same month he discovered he had advanced cancer and passed away shortly after, on 10 January 2016 surrounded by his family at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.

Over five years later, Greater Manchester Police employee, Katie has dedicated her 30th birthday celebrations to Nathan and decided to take part in Dr Kershaw’s ‘Virtual Hospice Walk’ in memory of her good friend.

Katie explains: “We didn’t get to celebrate Nathan’s birthday properly so decided to use my 30th birthday to raise vital funds for the Hospice who cared so wonderfully for my good friend and for other family members over the years. I would definitely recommend signing up for the ‘Virtual Hospice Walk’, as well as keeping fit and achieving a goal you are raising vital funds that I can personally say are very much appreciated by the patients and families who need them.”

Completing her own distance of 10.6km which she split between a walk and run, Katie raised over £500 for the Hospice.
