On October 1st Becky Rae will be running The Great Scottish Run half marathon in Glasgow to raise funds for the Trust.
Becky writes: “This is a very personal issue for me. A few months ago I think I would have struggled to run a full mile, however after my ex Trimaan Dhillon was found guilty of murdering Alice on the 26th of April 2017, I knew that I wanted to do something to raise awareness of the dangers of controlling and coercive behaviours in relationships.
“Over the past few months I have been training extremely hard to build up my fitness levels and although my primary motivation remains to support The Alice Ruggles Trust, putting my energy into something positive has also really helped me to cope with my own anxiety surrounding these issues.”
