    Story

    Greg Gilbert is known to many as the singer and guitarist of the band Delays and as an artist. I met Greg many years ago when the band were starting out! Having spent well over 10 years and some of the best times I can remember with the band to hear the news of Greg's illness was a huge shock! More importantly Greg is the daddy to two baby girls Dali (3) and Bay (1) and having two children myself I can only imagine what his partner Stacey and the family are going through! He has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer that has spread to his lungs and the family has been told that the NHS is limited in what they can do to save him. Greg needs urgent treatment abroad and this is my way of raising much needed funds and supporting a guy who is one of the best a fantastic musician an incredible artist but above all a great guy with a beautiful family. Running a marathon is not easy but this is my way of helping so please support the family for a cause that is close to my heart and keeps me going on long cold runs in preparation for the MK Marathon on May 1st

I have now fully recovered from completing the marathon in 3hrs 22mins better than expected although the last few miles were a challenge 😂. Please see an update from Greg below which is such positive news for now. Thank you once again for all being on this ride with Greg it means the world to the family x

      Just an update to say thank you to everyone that has donated over the last couple of months i really appreciate it! I have unfortunately been injured for a few weeks so have missed some long runs but it just makes the challenge a bit harder! My race number arrived today and I managed to get back out for a short run and the injury felt fine so good news! It's now less than 3 weeks and to be honest I can't wait to get going! Thanks again and please keep spreading the word

      Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who has given again this week to help me raise funds towards Greg's treatment I am again overwhelmed by the generosity! It's been a slow week of training mainly due to a slight hamstring issue and that I have the Cambridge Half Marathon this Sunday which I am very excited about mainly due to the cake I can eat after burning so many calories!! I will be increasing the miles again next week and your support is giving me such encouragement! Enjoy your weekends and thank you again! Mark

      Thank you to everyone that has supported so far. I did a good 15 miles today with my friend Georgia supporting me as we have the Cambridge Half Marathon before I take on the marathon in May! After being in Southampton and seeing Greg on Friday and all the people that turned out at the benefit gig it was a humbling experience and one I will never forget full of love and energy for our boy Greg! It gave me the motivation today and will carry me to the finish line! Thank you again it's much appreciated x
