A cause close to the heart
Tony Brownlie, Solicitor within our Wills, Trusts and Probate department will tackle the London Marathon this April, in aid of Cardiomyopathy UK. For many who participate in the London Marathon, the charity they represent means a great deal to them, due to personal experiences and a passion for the cause – this too is the case for Tony.
Tony, who is in his early forties, did not have any previous cardiology issues. It was not until earlier this year, when training for the extreme obstacle race, Tough Mudder, that he began to experience chest pains and discomfort. After medical investigation, an intricate surgical procedure was undertaken to fit a stent in Tony’s heart.
He has hugely benefitted from the surgery and now, having completed Tough Mudder, he is ready to face his first marathon.
He aims to raise a total of £1,650 for Cardiomyopathy UK, the specialist national charity helping people affected by this condition. Their work includes providing support, information, raising awareness and campaigning for better access to quality treatment.
Tony has been part of the team at Attwaters Jameson Hill since 2011; he specialises in Private Client Law, in particular estate administration and probate work, but also tax and trusts, wills, lasting powers of attorney and estate planning.
Tony said, “I am really excited to challenge myself in the London Marathon this year, and am aiming to complete it in 4 hours 30 minutes. Cardiomyopathy UK is a fantastic charity, whose support means a great deal to those in similar situations to mine. I feel really privileged to be able to run on behalf of such a worthy cause and appreciate any support and donations people are able to give”.
