I’m hoping to raise £1,000 to help beat cancer

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page and taking the time to read my story as to why I decided to sign up for the Paris Marathon.

In April of 2008, my Dad (aged 64 at the time) was diagnosed with an aggressive and inoperable brain tumour. Shortly after his death in April 2009, I set myself the challenge of running ten 10k's in ten weeks and in the process managed to raise £2,600 for the charity Brain Tumour UK.

Ten years on (and a few more grey hairs along the way) I was looking to do something that would not only mark the anniversary of his passing, but continue to raise awareness and much needed funding into what remains one of the most challenging types of cancer.

Hence the reason for taking on the challenge of my first marathon, which on a personal level is a new test, and one that I'm looking forward to immensely (just for the glass of champagne at the end of 26 miles !!!)

Any contribution towards my target of £1,000 would be greatly appreciated and thanks for your support.
