Enter the British London 10K for ‘Let’s Face It’ Facial Cancer Charity

One of our club members, Daniel Jackson is an ambassador for a charity called ‘Let’s Face It’ who support people and families who have suffered or are being treated for facial cancer. You can read his marvellous story in his blog www.igoggle.wordpress.com

Daniel had a cancerous tumour removed from his face last year which meant removing his eye and losing all the tissue around it.  It was a tough year for him but he was supported by an amazing charity called ‘Let’s Face It’ www.lets-face-it.org.uk.  As a result of the support he received, he now works closely with them and is raising support and awareness for the charity, and for others going through this horrendous ordeal. 

Daniel is already committed to running the Brighton marathon, but has also been offered an opportunity to secure charity places  in the http://www.thebritish10klondon.co.uk.  Daniel is asking Thanet Roadrunners members if they would like a free space to help raise some money for this worthy cause. At this point he is getting an idea of how many places to purchase.

So if anyone from the club or connected with the club is interested in a free charity space, please contact Daniel. The normal cost of an individual entry is £50 and Daniel feels that each person should reach a realistic target of £100…so this might be ideal for someone at the start of their running career.

If you are interested, please call Daniel on 07525189970. At the moment it is just an idea and no guarantee of a place at the moment.
