In the heart of Cardiff, on Sunday 1st October 2023, a dedicated team of 120 remarkable supporters embarked on a mission, not just as runners but as a living tribute to Greg Lloyd, who passed away suddenly in August 2022 after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest.
This incredible team, comprising Greg’s wife Louise, his son Rhys and daughter Sophie, and so many friends, family, and colleagues, shared a common bond—their love for Greg. They came together not just to mourn his loss but to celebrate his life and ensure his spirit lived on. Greg had been the epitome of health, a veteran of the Cardiff Half Marathon, and even conquered the challenging Snowdonia Marathon in 2019. His sudden departure shocked everyone who knew him, and the amazing team of 120 memorialised him by raising funds in his honour.
As well as participating in various different fundraising challenges and documenting those on the Much Loved tribute page which has raised an astonishing £7,162, the team set themselves a fundraising target of £20,000 to support research into Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests (OOHCA), aiming to understand how and why they occur and finding ways to treat and prevent them.
Team Lloyd have smashed their target, and have raised an absolutely incredible £29,863.46 which is still rising! Congratulations and a heartfelt thank you to every single one of the Team Lloyd runners, you have achieved something remarkable in memory of the much-loved dad, husband, friend and colleague.
There is still time to support this team by donating to their JustGiving Page.
