We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


I'm grateful to be able to walk a marathon. I'm grateful because so many I know aren't able to as they've lost their lives to cancer.

My Mom and Dad died 22 weeks apart of lung and liver cancer respectively.My work mentor died a year later of pancreatic cancer. My Aunt Mary was the first I knew to die of cancer from lung cancer. My friend's wife in her 40's died of ovarian cancer leaving 3 daughters. It was the news of her death that prompted me to sign up for the full marathon and not the half marathon last year. An older acquaintance, Naomi, has lost her husband, and 2 of her 3 children to GI cancers. 

Luckily my 2nd cousin and ex mother in law both live on after being treated for breast cancer. 

Let's find a cure so people don't need to face this disease.

Gift Aid - If you are a UK taxpayer, please remember to tick the Gift Aid box when donating as this will increase your donation by at least 25% at no cost to you.

Sleep can wait (the walk is overnight). Beating cancer can’t.
