Joe & Tom's London Marathon 2019 fundraiser for Children with Cancer UK

In April 2019 I will be running alongside my friend Tom “Rico” Richardson in the London marathon. We’re raising money for a very worthy cause, Children with Cancer UK. When discussing with Rico which charity we would like to run for, we decided Children with Cancer UK was a standout choice. While it’s not something that’s effected our lives directly, it’s the one charity we could relate to most. As fathers of young children ourselves, we can only imagine the emotions of the parents of children with Cancer. While we're both very fit through playing sport all our lives, we’ve never run a marathon before. It will definitely be one to tick off the bucket list. We both appreciate a marathon is a completely different kettle of fish to playing sport and will certainly train hard for it. Personally, I play football for Saffron Walden Town Football Club and will be putting in some longer runs in my own time alongside my football training and matches. An ex Saffron Walden Town player, Rico tore his ACL playing football as a teenager but has kept fit through cycling and walking and i'm sure he will incorporate this into his training. 

Children with Cancer UK actively raise and invest money for vital specialist research to save the lives of every child with cancer and keep their family together. Their vision is a world where every child diagnosed with cancer gets to ring their end of cancer treatment bell.

If you would be so kind to make a donation we would be very grateful.
