In two and a half weeks I will be running the Royal Parks Half Marathon for Bone Cancer Research Trust in memory of Guy Francis. Those who knew Guy knew not only was he a fantastic, funny and very loyal friend, he also really believed in fundraising and research into Osteosarcoma, the cancer he managed to at first fight and win but eventuality lost his battle against. Guy did parachute jobs and promoted fundraising, encouraging friends to join in to try find a cure into this agressive form of cancer, and I will always try at least every few years keep up that fundraising Guy so wanted us all to do. Heres the current challenge and its been a long long time since I've done a long run.
You can read Guy's story here at http://www.bcrt.org.uk/mbcs_my_story.php?l=guy_francis and I will try find lots of silly pictures to share that sum up just who Guy was (most will involve fancy dress as he was a bit partial to throwing parties which we had to wear fancy dress for).
Every donation no matter how small all counts and if you qualify please tick gift aid, as £2 becomes £2.50 with me needing to do anything.
