My story

[p]Sunday 26th April 2020 would have been the 40th Running of the London Marathon. I was due to run this fantastic race for an amazing charity - ChildrenWithCancerUK. As with every charity, these are desperately worrying times. All the more reason that we continue to support them at every turn. To commemorate the event, my neighbours agreed to help me raise funds on April 26th 2020 by completing the Marathon - each household running one mile around the block - every effort being made to strictly adhere to social distancing guidelines. Then last October I completed the Virtual London Marathon on October 4th 2020. Finally, 18 months after I was originally supposed to run, on October 3rd 2021, I’ll be running the 26.2 miles of the London course in aid of the charity. Please read on to learn about the amazing work the charity does and why they now, more than ever would appreciate your support.[/p][p]12 families in the UK receive the devastating news that their child has cancer. Through funding vital specialist research, Children with Cancer UK has done everything in its power to give these children the best chance to survive. [/p][p]With your support Children with Cancer UK can fund over 60 research projects across the UK accelerating breakthroughs to help drive up childhood cancer survival rates and find kinder, more effective treatments to reduce long-term side effects. This ground breaking research saves children's lives and would otherwise go unfunded. [/p][p]Knowing treatment can be especially challenging for family life, Children with Cancer UK also helps fund patient family accommodation near hospitals so families can stay together during their children's treatment. We also organise unforgettable days out for children and their families to create memories that will never be lost. [/p][p]But we still have so much more to do. A single child dying from cancer is one too many. With your support, we are helping to create a future in which every child with cancer survives and experiences the life changing moment when they ring the end of treatment bell.[/p][p]Thank you for helping to save the lives of children with cancer and keep families together.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Children with Cancer UK. [/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p][p]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
