We fund research into digestive diseases to save lives with better treatments


I am participating in the Hackney Half Marathon on the 26 September 2021 in memory of my Dad, who passed away in January 2020 after a sudden acute illness: pancreatitis. 

I am raising money for Guts UK to fund further research into pancreatitis in the hope that one day there will be a cure. Guts UK gave me a lot of support throughout my Dad’s time in hospital, and the days following. 

Guts UK are the only charity in the UK funding a research fellowship into Pancreatitis.

To read more about this awful disease, you can visit the Guts Uk website and read stories collected for the Kranky Panky campaign. If you’d like to read more, my dad’s story is included in the 2020 campaign:

Guts UK is the charity for the digestive system. Our guts have been underfunded, understaffed & undervalued for decades. With new knowledge, we will end the pain for the millions affected by digestive diseases. Guts UK’s research leads to earlier diagnoses, kinder treatments & ultimately, a cure.
