Pancreatic Cancer Action

We focus on early diagnosis and awareness to improve survival of pancreatic cancer

Charity Registration No. 1137689

Story

After running the Royal Parks Half Marathon in 2016 and declaring I'd never run a marathon, I've decided to enter the Valencia Marathon a year later and run it in memory of my Dad, George, who died of pancreatic cancer 11 years ago.

Fundraising isn't my strong point but this is a cause that means a lot to me. 40 years ago 3% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survived 5 years or more. Today that figure is still just 3%.

Pancreatic Cancer Action are a national charity dedicated to saving lives by improving early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and the quality of patient survival. Anything you can give would mean a lot to me and spur me on as I toil around the streets of Valencia on Sunday 19th November.

Thanks for your support.

Simon.
