Update 3 June 2012

The Plymouth Half Marathon is now over! I'm please to say I beat last year's time by a couple of minutes, making it around the course in 2h 4m 06s.

Thank you to everyone who donated and supported Macmillan Cancer Support.

If you haven't donated yet, there's still plenty of time! This page will be active for a few months, so please continue to support Macmillan by donating and sharing this page with your friends and family.

In 1996, Pat Mourton was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was lucky enough to meet Pat through her son Richard and husband Alan, during my first days at secondary school. They quickly became very close friends.

Pat was well known for her work in the local community, and everyone who was fortunate enough to meet her couldn’t help but be inspired by her spirit, determination, and (perhaps most of all) her unfaltering sense of humour.

In the nearly 2 decades she lived with the disease, Pat fought and beat the breast cancer, and bravely endured bone cancer and later metastatic liver cancer. She ran countless fundraising events for the charities that would become close to her heart.

Sadly, Pat lost her battle with cancer on 15 August 2011.

Macmillan nurses provide exceptional support and care not only to cancer sufferers, but their families who face this horrible disease. Macmillan nurses truly went above-and-beyond the call of duty for Pat, Alan and Richard.

In memory of Pat, and to help Macmillan carry on this tireless work, I’m running the Plymouth Half Marathon for a second time on 3 June 2012 and need to raise £1000 for Macmillan.

Please donate whatever you can to help me reach - and smash - my target of raising £1000 for Macmillan Cancer Support so that other people can continue to receive the support that was so important to Pat, Alan and Richard.

Please take a moment to send this page to everyone you know to help support those who are suffering with cancer.

Thank you,
Chris
