Adam Mould has committed to taking on several huge challenges in 2023, raising money in memory of his fiancé, Annie, who received treatment from Birmingham Hospice.
“Annie was always known for her kind soul and beautiful smile. She had a real knack of making friends in any scenario because she was so approachable, witty, and such a good listener.
“What stood out most over the last couple of years to all those who knew her or met her during her cancer journey, was her determination and gratitude. Her treatment team and oncologist always noted her brilliant positive attitude.
“She would always count herself as one of the ‘lucky ones’, even with her diagnosis, because she was so grateful for the support and love around her.”
Aneela, fondly known as Annie, passed away in September 2022 after being diagnosed with cancer. During her diagnosis, Annie was referred to the hospice to help with her pain control and management.
“Annie was so well looked after. The staff were amazing, and it was so important to know someone was there on hand to help. Being cared for at home was so important to us.”
Adam is taking on several challenges this year to raise money for Birmingham Hospice in Annie’s memory. To kickstart his year of fundraising, Adam is taking on our very own Ride the Reservoir, then the Great Birmingham Run, the Iron Man 70.3 Staffordshire, the British Olympic Triathlon and, finally, the Ironman Barcelona.
“My world will never be the same without ‘my person’, so I have searched for a way to honour this amazing woman and have come up with a challenge to span my first year of grieving for Aneela.”
Regarding Ride the Reservoir, Adam said: “I’ve never done it before, but there is a group of us taking part, and I’m really looking forward to it. I will be pushing myself, but knowing I am doing it for Annie is what makes it worth it.”
We are so proud of Adam for taking on this immense challenge to raise money for The Hospice Charity Partnership and can’t wait to see his progress every step of the way. You can see Adam’s progress and updates here: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/anniesashes
