My story

[p]I am running in memory of my father, Garth Crocker, who dies in April 2019. Dad had skin cancer. Despite an operation to remove the affected area he was later diagnoses with two brain tumours. That was when he was introduced to the Beacon Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital. Over 15 months Dad received tremendous care and treatment. Professional and empathetic support gave him 15 months extra life. My father died as an in-patient at the Beacon Centre, receiving what I can only describe as loving care from the staff that reflected my father’s experience as an out-patient.[/p][p]My father had a long and happy life before cancer struck him. Many people are less fortunate. My father was fortunate that a treatment programme existed to improve the quality and length of his life, others are not so lucky. SURE is teaming up with other charities supporting Musgrove Park Hospital (League of Friends and Love Musgrove) to raise £1 million to provide Musgrove with a much-needed, brand new, high specification 1.5T MRI scanner. I would like to help raise funds to allow The Beacon Centre to extend the assistance they can give other patients. [/p][p]Please donate what you can. For my part I will run a half marathon at the grand old age of 56. Thank you.[/p][p][br][/p]

Good luck Nic, I did the Cheddar half a while back and it's a real achievement. Not sure I could do a full one, even in full fitness.
