Holy Rood School parents raise £9.35K in memory of Jess Macqueen

A group of 23 parents from Holy Rood School, where Jess Macqueen attended, ran the Watford Autumn 10K on the 24th November 2019. They raised a staggering £9.35K and announced this as just the beginning of their fundraising campaign in memory of Jess Macqueen. Jess died on the 18th October 2019 just 4.5 months after she was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma. She’s yet another reason why this battle to find a cure and better treatments is so very important.

Thank you to Jess, her family, friends and supporters for this tremendous fundraising for Alice’s Arc.
