I am running for Anthony Nolan to support the amazing fundraising efforts of Linton Jazz, of which my wife Sally is a member, who are raising money for Anthony Nolan. Linton Jazz is directed by Karen Sanderson whose husband, Mark, required a transplant and a donor has been found through Anthony Nolan.
Every day, Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with a blood cancer or blood disorder. They do this by matching incredible individuals willing to donate their stem cells, to people who desperately need a lifesaving transplant. They also carry out cutting edge scientific research, fund specialist post-transplant nurses and support patients and their families through the transplant process and beyond. They won’t stop until they save the lives of everyone who needs a stem cell transplant. Every penny you donate brings them closer to that day.
I have not run a half marathon in many years. This is going to be a major challenge for me so please do share and support my efforts.
