I have decided to take part in the Great North Run again in 2017!
Looking for a charity to support in securing a place, I decided to apply via the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.
Bobby Moore – England’s 1966 World Cup winning captain – was just 51 years old when he died in 1993 from bowel cancer.
Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK – and the second most common cause of cancer death.
The Bobby Moore Fund is now a leader in the fight against bowel cancer, funding research that’s helping more people to survive than ever before.
Since the fund was set up in 1993 mortality rates have fallen 30% and over £23.5 million has been raised for research – but there is still so much more to do.
I will specifically be running and raising money in memory of our friend John Lewis, who very sadly passed away in June this year.
