I’m running the 2020 Great North Run for Cancer Research UK. Cancer is something so many people have to suffer and CRUK works tirelessly through donations to find a cure for this horrible disease. Like the majority of charities, Cancer Research is reliant on support from the public. Every sponsorship I receive for my Great North Run effort will go into funding vital research. In 2019 Cancer Research UK raised a total of £627m. From this amazing amount raised, £442 million went to funding projects that will run for many years.
As I complete the 13 miles I will remember those people, including my Dad, who have suffered as a result of this disease and also those who are still suffering.
