Charity Marathon

 

                   BATH HALF MARATHON

 

My name is Joe Page and you may know me as I was brought up in the village. You may also know my step father Andy, as he also lives in the village and can be regularly seen walking with my mum Cath and "Humphrey" the dog. Or you may recognise us from the photograph.

Approximately 18 Months ago Andy was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin Lymphoma which is a blood cancer. This is the 5th most common type of cancer in the UK and, in his case, can be treated but not cured. Regardless of the circumstances, Andy has been nothing but positive, tackling 6 months of chemo-therapy and is still currently receiving treatment.

This is why myself and my girlfriend Charlotte are running the Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 12th March in aid of Bloodwise. Bloodwise is the charity who fund world-class research and offer expert in-formation and support to anyone affected by Leukae-mia, Lymphoma, Myeloma and other blood cancer related disor-ders.

Our aim is to raise as much money as we can for this excellent charity and therefore if you would wish to donate to our justgiving page (www.justgiving.com/ JoeandLottie) then any amount would be greatly appreciated. If you do not have access to a computer but would still like to donate, then you could drop a donation to Andy at 3 Grange Avenue where he would be able to forward it to the just giving page on your behalf.

Thank you for taking the time to read this,
