Here’s what Evie had to say about the 2021 Great North Run:

“The Great North Run was my first half marathon and an incredible challenge however knowing that all of my efforts would assist a fantastic charity, made it all worth while. The support received from the Fight for Sight team was amazing and kept me motivated throughout. We're all a little guilty of this but please don't take your vision for granted and look after your eyes like you do the rest of your body.”
