Story

I’m taking on the wall 70 mile Ultra from Carlisle to Newcastle in June 2024. I’ve set myself this challenge as my dad was diagnosed with mesothelioma which is a form of lung cancer (asbestos related). There is no cure but he is undergoing treatment to slow things down. Therefore I take on this challenge to raise money for Velindre as they continue their great work.

My dad is a fighter and therefore I will do this no matter what!

Velindre, the Hospital of Hope has been providing specialist treatment and supportive care to cancer patients and families for over 65 years.

Money raised for Velindre Charity helps fund ground breaking research and clinical trials, cutting edge treatments, specialist nurses, support services, therapies, equipment and so much more which are above those provided by the NHS – so donations really do have a significant impact on patients and their families.

Your donation will allow Velindre to continue to provide Hope for the future.
