On Sunday 3rd April 2022, James Roden ran the Manchester Marathon in memory of his late father who passed near this time last year from vascular dementia.
Running the 26 miles, the 40 year old RAF pilot raised over £1,775 for Coniston House Care Home, the Rochcare home where his 78-year-old father David was cared for in his final years.
He said: “I ran the marathon nearly a year to the day that my father passed on April 9 last year. I set an original target of £1,500 so it is amazing to have raised over.”
“My dad made friends with staff in the care home and they took really good care of him, some of which even came to his funeral.”
Commending Jame’s fundraising efforts, Donna Marsden, the manager at Coniston House, added she was “so proud and humbled” that he wanted to fundraise for Coniston and thought that David would’ve been proud too.
