After her father, Chris, passed away at Kingston Hospital in June 2019, Jasmine has taken on several running challenges in his memory. She started with the 10k Chase the Sun in 2019, a half marathon in 2020 and a virtual version of the London Marathon, which she successfully ran around Richmond Park, on the day of the actual event on 3 October 2021. Jasmine acknowledges that running has really helped her to process the loss of her father over the last few years. She has also really enjoyed fundraising in his memory, raising money for the hospital that helped him so much during his illness.
Although delighted to have successfully completed a virtual version of the London Marathon, Jasmine was determined to take on the real thing and was given her chance on Sunday 23 April 2023, as one of the 47,000 people who took part.
