We are raising as much as we can to beat cancer

In memory of

John Stocks

Cancer is happening right now, which is why we're raising money right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose!

10 years ago this June we lost the most amazing Dad and Grandad to cancer. The pain this disease caused not only to my Dad / Grandad but also our family is indescribable and still very raw today that’s why both Megan and I have decided to do the Great North Run Half Marathon in his honour. Cancer Research has done some amazing work over the past 10 years yet there is still a lot more to be done in order for us to hopefully one day live in a cancer free world. Please help to achieve this by sponsoring us. Any amount would be grateful.

Training is going well - not easy but we will get there . Like Megan said whilst out running one evening “ If Grandad can go through the pain of trying to fight this disease then I can go through the pain of running 13.1 miles”
Many thanks 🙏

Donate to our page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
