Lauren Rowe is the daughter of long-time member, Sunday regular and sometimes Parkrun regular, Chris Rowe. Lauren has faced some incredible hurdles in her life. She was born with cystic fibrosis and received a double lung transplant when she was just 19. Lauren has now started her very own charity Gifted Life helping transplant recipients and raising organ donor awareness. It's a remarkable story!
Lauren is nominated in the Women of the Future Awards and if she wins will put the prize money to valuable use helping to grow her charity. If you have a spare minute please click on this link and vote for Lauren:
