I'm running the London Marathon for Cancer Research UK. Together we will beat cancer!

Hard to believe, but I've been doing the London Marathon almost since I learnt to walk! This will be my 32nd consecutive London Marathon, each one having been a very special occasion, an amazing experience and a real celebration of life. Running for a good cause is what makes the whole thing really worthwhile.

In the time that I've been getting up and heading off to Blackheath on an April Sunday morning, although great progress has been made, we've all probably lost family, friends and neighbours to cancer. This is one occasion when we can do something to try and extend the opportunity of more special occasions and amazing experiences to others who perhaps aren't able or inclined to run a marathon.

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m raising money for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose! Leave me to sweat the hard stuff - all you have to do is reach for your card and then enjoy a lie-in! Please donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
