On Christmas day 2018 Samantha May tragically and suddenly passed away leaving a hole in the hearts of all who loved her.
In the seven years, Samantha spent as cabin crew British Airways she was undoubtedly a huge part of the BA family inspiring everyone with her endless positivity. As much as she loved her job, her real passion was for sports. If she wasn’t at work, she would be at the gym, at the beach, at a sports club, or competing in a sporting event.
To celebrate her passion for sport 25 staff from the British Airways family will compete in the ‘Run Gatwick’ 5K Race and Half Marathon an event sponsored by the airline. This is a sponsored event where we will raise money for the Samantha May Memorial Fund. The memorial fund will be used to build an outdoor gym in Samantha’s home town of Littlehampton. The outdoor space will provide a first-class fitness space for the local community and serve as a memorial for her friends and family. We need your help to make this dream a reality. Please support those running in the event by sponsoring them. No donation is too small. The event promises to be a lot of fun so please come and cheer the runners along the race through beautiful Southgate park and into Crawley town centre.

The Run Series team wishes everyone running in memory of Samantha the best of luck on Sunday. We look forward to seeing you all cross the finish line.
