In memory of Keith Crankshaw
We fund research into childhood cancer to save and improve young lives


Thank you for taking time to visit my page.

I am incredibly excited to be running in my first major marathon. LONDON MARATHON, 02 OCTOBER  2022!!!

I will be running in memory of my father who sadly passed away 3 years ago from a melanoma that metastasized in his brain. Upon diagnosis he was told he had only 6 months left to live. He loved his sports and more importantly loved being on the side line supporting me. He would have loved to been here for this race. 

Losing a family member is the hardest thing one can experience and having a time limit on life makes you cherish every second. Having been through this and experiencing the devastation a loss brings to a family, I am honoured to be raising funds for Children with Cancer UK, where they actively raise and invest money for vital specialist research to save the lives of every child with cancer and to keep their family together. 

My hope is that I can contribute to help loved ones get more time together and with research that can result in better outcomes for many.

Please support me and the Children with Cancer charity by donating. Your money will help fund research, support families and raise awareness.
