Anyone close to me will know I have no business running a marathon..... With next to no running experience and a few months training I'm going to be running the Stockholm Marathon this June.
I'm doing this to support the Future Fund, a collaborative initiative between the institute I studied at - Newcastle University, the Great North Children’s Hospital and North of England Children’s Cancer Research. The money will go directly into funding state of the art research into preventing, curing and aiding rehabilitation in childhood cancer, one of the biggest killers of kids aged 1-15 in our country. 8 out of 10 children diagnosed today will be cured due to modern medical advances, however this progress is costly and relies on charities such as this to drive it forward.
Any donations big or small to this extremely worthy charity will be hugely appreciated. Have a look at the links below for more information.
