Staff at a city university have pledged to run a half marathon in memory of a colleague.
The Aberdeen University workers are due to take part in the Great Aberdeen Run in memory of former finance director Sue Richardson, who died in May from a brain tumour, after intending to run the marathon herself.
A group of 20 colleagues aim to raise £10,000 for Brain Tumour Research by running in Sue’s place.
Caroline Inglis, a close friend of Sue’s and university secretary, said: “Sue and I had run a number of races together and she is dearly missed by all of us.
“She had been a keen runner for many years and took part in many marathons and half marathon events including the Great North Run, so our fundraiser will be a fitting tribute to her.”
The group will join thousands of runners on the streets of Aberdeen on August 26, starting and ending on Union Street.
