Officers from Merseyside Police are taking part in the 2013 Run to Remember, in aid of the PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund, which raises money to for the Care of Police Survivors (COPS), Victim Support and the North West Benevolent Fund.

Detectives, Constables, PCSO’s and staff members are coming together from right across the force, to take part in the 125-day running challenge.

Coordinator of the event for Merseyside Police, Constable Mark Hobin explained: “We heard about the event from our colleagues in Greater Manchester and straight away we had 42 officers and staff members sign up to take part.

“Representatives from all 43 forces in England and Wales are taking part in the challenge, which involves running 250 miles over 125 days starting on Sunday, 1 December and I know I’ve already started my training.

“As fellow officers, we were all affected by the deaths of PCs Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone, and we hope through our efforts both on the road and through our fundraising, will hope to make meaningful contribution to this great charity.” Nat Hughes, Nicola Hughes’ mum said: “As a family we have been overwhelmed by the response we have received for Run to Remember. The support from police staff throughout the country has been of great support and made us feel like part of the Police family.

“This is a fantastic tribute to Nicola and she would be so proud of everyone taking part.”
