Nia Fortuna

After the death of her Husband, Colour Sergeant Kevin Fortuna, in Afghanistan in 2011, Nia and her family have chosen to raise as much money as possible for Help for Heroes.  Having exceeded the £100,000 mark last year, their current fundraising goal standing at a staggering £125,000. Their fundraising actually began before Kevin’s death, when Nia ran the London Marathon on the day that Kevin flew out to Afghanistan for the last time.  In 2012, Nia and her friend chose to mark the first anniversary of Kevin’s death with a sky dive.  This year, Nia ran the London Marathon once again, raising nearly £3,500. No doubt it was a hugely emotional experience, but we are so grateful that Nia has chosen to use her grief for something positive.
