On behalf of long time Swift Despatch driver Peter McGinty, we would like to share the following post with you all.
As some of you already know my son Colin was murdered in 2001 at the young age of 21. Colin was the victim of a horrific knife attack in which Merseyside Police described as a terrible case of mistaken identity.
This year Colin should be turning 40 but unfortunately he cannot be here to celebrate it. Colin’s brothers and sister – Laura, Robert, David and Michael have been taking on a number of different tasks from Strictly Come Dancing / Football / Abseiling to honour Colin and raise awareness of the City wide #NoMoreKnives campaign.
On Sunday 26th May the In Memory of Colin McGinty team are taking part in the Rock and Roll half marathon. This team has grown from 4 to 86 members in a matter of months! The team have trained tirelessly and really dedicated themselves to this cause. You may ask the question why a half marathon and not a full? My answer to that is really simple, over 70% of the team involved have never ran before in fact my daughter Laura could just about run a bath in the beginning!
As well as training really hard the team are fundraising for Radio City’s Cash for Kids charity. All the money raised will go directly back into local communities at a grass roots level to help eradicate this awful knife crime epidemic that our country seems to be facing!
