We support men, find answers & lead change to help more men survive prostate cancer

Charity Registration No. 1005541 and in Scotland (SC039332)


Hi All,

Thanks for visiting my justgiving page. I’m planning on raising a minimum of £2,000 in support of Prostate Cancer UK by
competing in the London Marathon this year.

This will be my second London Marathon having ran last year. I was fortunate to raise approx. £9,000 last year for Prostate Cancer UK, I don't expect to raise anywhere near that amount again as friends, family & work colleagues were so very kind last year and really pushed the boat out. But with the help of you all I will try to exceed the target as I did last year.

I believe this charity is hugely important and any help we can give will be very worthwhile, it will certainly be worth the pain, agony (& boredom) of all the wet, cold, dark runs. 

I've now ran over 500km since Christmas in training and trust me I'll be pleased when its over, but knowing it's for a great cause spurs me on. 

My story is that I lost my Dad to Cancer in 2009, with Prostate Cancer being the major cause. Dad was 74 when he passed away which really isn’t that old and he should have had a lot more years in him. I was not that aware of Prostate Cancer at the time, but now I’m getting that bit older and have friends who are dealing with the situation I want to do this run to try to raise as much money and awareness as I can.

10,000 men die each year of Prostate Cancer with most men unaware of the disease. Tests are unreliable and research is badly underfunded, so we need to change this urgently. 

Your contribution will make a huge difference and keep me focused on training and on the day. 

Thank you very much.
