In 2012 my life changed after I was diagnosed with a serious form of brain cancer, so last year I decided to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity, who held a sponsored walk in Windsor.
Five hundred walkers (including patients like myself) and volunteers came together on a rainy October evening for The Twilight Walk and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had since getting diagnosed.
Thanks to the generosity of donors I managed to raise £721.98, plus it was great to know it was part of a wider pool of around £67,000 that went to fund vital research into treatments.
That is why on September 20th I am walking 6 miles again.

Last month I ventured into London to check out the famous marathon which, aside from keeping people fit, has become a major fundraising event for cancer charities.

My principal reason for going was to meet up with a couple of people I know, one of whom was running for the Brain Tumour Charity and one who was volunteering.
Ultimately, I didn’t meet up with them as the scale of the event was overwhelming and I quickly got tired an hour after getting out at Green Park tube in the early afternoon.
Positioned near Buckingham Palace, the determination of the 37,675 runners was tangible as the crowds cheered them on, but glancing at the running bibs one could sense the sheer amount being raised for various charities, several of them cancer related.
