Originally a group of runners had made the commitment to run the 2020 Brighton marathon on 19th April along with Bennys’ Dad, Kevin. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they were unable to run the marathon as it was postponed. Kevin is looking to fulfil his commitment and promise to Benny by running the 26 miles on the Poppy Line Marathon, starting at Sheringham Primary School and finishing near The Crown PH on Sunday 8th August 2021.
There will be donations made to East Anglia's Children’s Hospice (EACH) and the Cromer Children’s Charity. With any monies remaining, we hope to create a Trust / Charity in Benny's name (Benny's Battalion) to help children diagnosed with DIPG and other childhood cancers, and their families.
EACH has been chosen as they are a charity that have helped the Pitchers along Bennys journey in fighting DIPG.
Cromer Children’s Charity is another charity that has been helping the Pitchers. The charity was registered in 1990 with the charities commission (reg: 802490) , the Chairman of the charity is Philip Balls.
