On Sunday 9th September I will be running the biggest half marathon in the world - The Great North Run. Sunday the 9th September is also the 7th year anniversary of my brother-in-laws passing. Ross was diagnosed with bowel cancer in January 2011 and lost his fight 9 months later on the 9th September. Ross was just 30 years old and left behind his wife of 10 months married and his 3.5 week old Son.

This is my 3rd Half Marathon “Running for Ross”. Something I promised him I would continue to do to raise money for the charities working so hard to find a cure. Your donation and support therefore really is appreciated - thank you xx
