Family in the pink for tribute

THE FAMILY of a Solihull woman who died from breast cancer will be donning pink t-shirts for a fun run in her memory.

THE FAMILY of a Solihull woman who died from breast cancer will be donning pink t-shirts for a fun run in her memory.

Amanda Lowe, from Chelmsley Wood, was just 46 when she died in September 2009, after battling the disease for about a decade.

Mrs Lowe, who worked as a secretary at Eversfield Preparatory School in Solihull, left behind husband Keith.

Her sister-in-law Amanda Naan and family will be at the Norman Green Athletics Centre at 11am on September 18 to raise funds for Solihull Breast Friends in a 5k Fun Run.

Both Amandas have raised funds for the Solihull breast cancer support group since it started 10 years ago.

Amanda Naan said: “Losing our sister has been very hard for all our family and without the support from Breast Friends, who we still campaign for, getting through every day would have been much harder.”

To take part in the Fun Run, download an entry and sponsor form at www.breastfriends-solihull.org.uk or call 0121 705 1942.

Entry is free and this year’s theme is Cool Britannia.
