My story

[p]My brother, Chris, and I are planning to walk the127 mile Leeds-Liverpool canal in September and I am also going to be running the Blackpool marathon. These events are to raise money for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer charity and also for the Canal & River Trust who maintain canal towpaths. [/p][p]For those that don't know Chris's dad (my step-dad) passed away in 2018 at the age of just 50 from lung cancer, having never smoked a day in his life. Despite being the biggest killer of all the cancers it receives the least amount of funding per patient. [/p][p]Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is the only UK lung cancer charity dedicated to helping everyone affected by the disease. Since 1990, when the charity was set up by Professor Ray Donnelly, they have funded millions of pounds of essential lung cancer research, looking for ways to detect the disease as early as possible and save lives. [/p][p]They support everyone affected by lung cancer – from diagnosis, through treatment, living with the disease and end of life care. They raise awareness, prevent future generations from getting it and challenge the misconceptions of lung cancer. They do all this so those diagnosed can live well with lung cancer for as long as possible.[/p][p]We also aim to donate 10% of the donations to the Canal & River Trust to enable them to maintain and improve the canal paths of England.[/p][p]Please donate if you can! :)[/p][p][br][/p][p]Matt & Chris x[/p][p][br][/p]
