Marc's home run for Young Lives Vs Cancer


On the 29th May I will leave The Young Lives vs Cancer home from home in Bristol and run 4 marathons in 4 days to Barnstaple. This is a very common journey for the children and families supported by this amazing charity.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer life becomes full of fear, for them and their family. Fear of treatment, but also of families being torn apart, overwhelming money worries, of having nowhere to turn, no one to talk to.

At Young Lives vs Cancer, we help families find the strength to face whatever cancer throws at them. But every day 12 more children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer. We’ll face it all together – but we can’t do it without you.
