We Support people with MDS Blood Cancer to Provide, information, support & guidance


In 2022, I have run in the Vitality 10k and the London Marathon Virtual together with other events.  Again in 2022, I have run more than 5,000km.

In 2021, I challenged myself to run three marathons in three weeks for MDS.  The marathons were:

18 September: Fox Trail Marathon Surrey - 5h5
26 September: BMW Berlin Marathon - 4h28
3 October: Virgin Money London Marathon - 4h22

On 17th October 2021, I ran the Cabbage Patch 10 mile event in 1:20:10.

My Strava total is more than 29,000km and I have run more than 5,000 km in 2021 and 2022. All my results and progress are posted on Strava: htps://

As background, I was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome in late 2016 and am currently in a low risk category with regular blood checks and no intervention. Since many sufferers are far worse off than me, I am trying to raise more money to add to charity funds, increase awareness and support sufferers of MDS. Now more than ever, the MDS needs funding; so please donate any amount to help the MDS UK Patient Support Group - £2, £5, £10....

MDS stands for Myelodysplastic Syndromes and is a rare group of bone marrow failure disorders, where the body no longer makes enough healthy, normal blood cells in the bone marrow
