A grieving dad is preparing to re-trace the final journey his daughter made before she died in her family's arms aged just five.
On Saturday (April 6), Dean Giles will run 68 miles in one day, from St George's Hospital in Tooting to his home in Mickleburgh Hill, Herne Bay, where little Eva spent her last moments surrounded by her loved ones.
He admits it will be an emotional as well as physical challenge.
"I've been thinking a lot about things recently," he said.
"It has a habit of hitting you when you least expect it.
"On the Sunday after the run it will be two years since she died so I don't know how I'll be feeling or what to expect when I do the run."
Eva died on April 7, 2017, almost a year after being diagnosed with rare brain tumour Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.
After her tragic death, her parents Dean and Emma set up Eva's Angels - the Kentish Gazette's charity of the year - which gives families affected by childhood cancer the chance to have a break and make lasting memories.
They bought a caravan in Swalecliffe where people can stay, and are raising money to buy another.
Dean and Emma said with help from charities Taylor Made Dreams and the Make A Wish Foundation, they were able to take Eva and their other two children away, including a holiday to Centre Parcs and glamping in Longleat, before she died.
“We were able to watch her be a normal, happy child again, free from hospitals, needles and MRI scans,” said Emma.
“We look back and see this made such a difference to Eva.
"We want to give other families this chance."
Dean's target is to raise £5,000 by doing the ultra-run, which is expected to take 12 to 13 hours, starting at 5.30am.
He will be joined by James Maybourn - who runs James Fitness in Herne Bay and has been helping with training - his brother Lee and some friends on their bikes.
