Chris runs too much

Fundraising for Love Hope Strength Foundation
Event: Race to the Stones 2024, from 13 July 2024 to 14 July 2024
We use rock and roll to fight cancer to save lives, one concert at a time.


I am running a couple of 100km ultra marathons in 2024, I'm not aiming for any time but just to finish both!!

The money raised is going to Love Hope Strength charity who is very close to my Partner Tesni's heart. The charity have taken me under their wing at numerous events while Tes was training for the Sahara, and it's time to give back! 

LHS was co-founded by acclaimed musician Mike Peters, who aimed to save lives, one concert at a time, and give hope to families affected by cancer. The money raised through this challenge will support healthcare projects around the world to help make LHS vision of a better world for people with cancer a reality.

Over the past decade LHS has established the 'Get On The List' programme to help people with a blood cancer who need a second chance of life. To date LHS has registered over 200,000 people to international stem cell donor registries. Over 4,000 of those who've registered have been identified as potentially life saving matches. Over £1m has been raised globally to help support some of the most vulnerable people affected by cancer. LHS has equipped hospitals and community cancer services with new facilities and equipment in parts of the UK, US, Africa and Asia.

Led by volunteers and supported by partnerships with leading international organisations, LHS provides those it serves with a lifeline.
