Leann Set to Continue Her Lincoln 10K Fund Raising Legacy

Leann Anderson is ready to smash her ninth Lincoln 10K in memory of her Dad.


Leann Anderson, 42, is running the Lincoln 10K for a ninth year in the loving memory of her dad, Chris Lynch, who sadly passed due to prostate cancer in 2013.

Leann will be raising money for Prostate Cancer UK and will be supported by her many friends and family.

Speaking to Run For All, Leann said: “I am running because my dad started running in 2010 when he found out he had prostate cancer.

“Unfortunately, he died in 2013 at the age of 56, leaving behind a very loving, large family. Our family runs the Lincoln 10K every year to support Prostate Cancer UK in memory of him.

“In total we have raised over £7,000 for the charity and a few years ago my sister, Rachel, and I were invited to the Men United Launch.”

“In total, I have three sisters; Rachel, Helen and Holly, who all have run the Lincoln 10K with me for Prostate Cancer UK. All our partners support us when we run - as well as extended family and friends.”

Chris was the popular owner of the Waterfront Café in Lincoln and a very proactive member of the local community. He was actively involved at the Alive Church in Lincoln.

The very proud Leann added, “Dad was so proactive in the local community that the local paper produced a full page story about him when he died”.

Leann is not feeling particularly confident about the race, despite having smashed the Lincoln 10K eight times previous!

When asked if she was a good runner Leann was quick to respond, “No! But my younger sister is very good and she is running this year.”
