I'm running the Oxford half marathon for Occtopus Oxford Colon Cancer Trust because Bowel cancer is as important as all other cancers!

Story

Back in 2004 my Dad died of bowel cancer. It's a bit of a no-brainer that if I am going to raise money it should be for this cause :-)

Read the information below to find out more about what the charity does.

Oxford Colon Cancer Trust is a very practical charity. Our byline is “making new treatments happen”. Whilst national high profile charities fund work on how cancer cells go wrong, OCCTOPUS has a more immediate focus.Originally formed in 2003 it aims to fund practical advances in treatment, education and research in these areas - the 3 “C’s” Colorectal cancer, Colitis and Crohns, and Continence.We help the colorectal team at the Oxford University Hospitals keep right up to date with and even ahead of advances in tools and techniques.
