2018 Cardiff University Cardiff Half Marathon
Sun 7 Oct 2018
Hello Guys & Girls! I am starting to think this fitness malarkey has gone to my head. After successfully completing the Joe Wicks 90 day plan and becoming a certified hunk, I have now decided to run the Cardiff Half Marathon in support of Cancer Research UK. I am now looking to transform from Joe Wicks into Mo Farah. Everyone knows someone affected by cancer and as 1 in 2 will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime it is important to act now. The primary reason I am running this race is for my dad and my family. In the summer of 2013, my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with very minor symptoms. This means a tumour that has spread to other organs leaving my dad with a 12% survival rate at five years. My dad had twelve months of surgery and chemo; leaving him with a permanent colostomy, half a liver (it grows back!!!!) and 80% of his lungs (they don’t grow back). My awesome dad has now been declared clear of disease for four years now and is working full-time leading a team of engineering designers. Here is a few words from my dad:'My family, friends and healthcare teams have all been fantastic in supporting me through some very self-centred and selfish times – I wouldn’t be here now without all of them.' Please donate to this amazing cause and feel free to support me in Cardiff when the time comes :).Let's beat cancer sooner!
