Virgin London Marathon 2014

On the 13th April 2014, Dan is running the London Marathon in support of Cancer Research UK.

Cancer knows no boundaries. It doesn’t take into consideration a person’s wealth, social status or family circumstances. Instead it can affect anyone at anytime and so the responsibility lies with us all to unite in the fight against cancer.

By running the London Marathon for Cancer Research UK, I hope to play my part in raising money that can be used for vital research, new technology and improved patient care across the entire country.

I want to raise as much as I can, as well as helping to raise awareness about early diagnosis of cancer.

I know that our NHS staff do fantastic work in our hospitals, caring for cancer patients and helping to ease the burden on their families. Cancer Research UK also does a brilliant job in raising awareness around cancer and its symptoms.

I know that we could save thousands of lives each year if people were more aware of cancer symptoms but unfortunately people put off screenings or going to see their doctor which sometimes leads to a late diagnosis.

I believe that politicians should work with charities, pharmaceutical companies, scientists and Governments from around the world to try and find a cure for cancer.

We must be bold in our attempts to combat the disease and if I can play my small part on the day then I will be proud to do so.
