Running Tales

Wayne Chalmers: Running in memory of my daughter, Daisy

October 2, 2020

Running had never been a big part of Wayne Chalmers' life.

Aside from the odd bit of training to keep fit as a referee, he - in his own words - "didn't really like running".

His relationship with the sport changed, though, when his baby daughter Daisy sadly died just an hour after being born.

Not one to stand idle, Wayne launched Team Daisy; a charity aimed at raising money for local causes and honouring the memory of his daughter.

A host of fundraising events followed, including a number of running challenges.

The latest of those will see Wayne attempt to run four miles, every four hours for 48 hours - that's a lot of doing something you don't like...
