The Cator Troops Run Four Half Marathons in Four Continents!

Team photo

Join The Cator Troops as we run four half marathons in four continents to raise money for Cancer Research UK and the UK Stem Cell Foundation and help Dad on his road to recovery!

What started as the ambitious challenge of running The Bath Half in support of Cancer Research UK has spiraled with the energy from an almost overwhelming amount of support from friends and family around the world; The 1st of March 2015 will now see an international relay of over 48 miles covered in Bath, Hong Kong, Vancouver Island and Sydney for the cause.

As many of you know Dad was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in August. We have since found out that it is an aggressive form of Blastoid Mantle Cell Lymphoma - as Dad has it, "the Norfolk way of saying blasted!" He is now looking at having a bone marrow transplant next year, and various other evil sounding drugs to help him keep it under control. This is a very rare form of cancer and therefore requires continual research is being continually done to develop new and more effective treatment. Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research and is a fundamental support for schemes pushing innovation and tackling scientific challenges, in cancer research. For this reason we decided to run a family Half Marathon and as the Cator's and close family seem to be spread all the way around the world we have embarked on a mission to run FOUR half Marathons in FOUR different continents.

Join The Cator Troops to make the 1st March 2015 a day to remember, and an event that will make a huge impact on a charity helping not just our Dad but the 400 people diagnosed with cancer in the UK every day.

Kicking off our global marathon relay will be Oscar and the Aussie Cator’s charging over the (delightfully named) Athletes Foot Half Marathon near Sydney, Rosanna and the Hong Kong team will then take the baton over the hills of Hong Kong, passing it on to the burgeoning UK team in Bath, with cousin Annabel and her squad covering the last half in Vancouver Island, Canada.

The aim of the game is to get as many willing runners to run with our Cator Troops, and you have plenty of options to choose from! Whatever you do, be it run / walk / skip / waddle in a dinosaur outfit over the line, we will be thrilled to have your support. Mum has made it very clear that she will be running for her own personal best and will not allow anyone to judge her for walking!! If you can't make it please donate instead, RIGHT HERE!

With love and thanks from Cator’s one and all xxx
