Shine London 2018 - Full Marathon
Sat 22 Sep 2018 - Sun 23 Sep 2018
Hi everyone I thought I’d set myself a new challenge and do this walk a little 26.2 miles to raise some money. I have decided to raise money to be given to help people with brain tumours with hope that these can be caught and treated at an early stage. Sadly my father-in-law Dave was diagnosed late with a stage 4 glioblastoma tumour. He had treatment and operations but sadly lost his battle last April 2017. I intend to shine bright and leave abit of sparkle in the streets of London in memory of Dave and make every step count to raise Money & hope to help others.

Your details are safe with Cancer Research UK. Glioblastomas are the most common high grade (cancerous) primary brain tumour in adults. They can also occur, rarely, in children. Glioblastomas belong to a group of brain tumours known as gliomas, as they grow from a type of brain cell called a glial cell.
Each year in the UK, more than 9,400 people are diagnosed with tumours that start in the brain or elsewhere in the central nervous system. With more than 100 different types of brain tumour, donations can help Cancer Research UK find out what causes them and develop better treatments to improve the outlook for patients.
With Cancer Research UK Giving Pages more of the money raised goes towards beating cancer. Aside from the credit and debit card fees, every penny donated goes to Cancer Research UK.
