This event is being organised by Alex Hall, who is running the London Marathon to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Before you think "Ooooh, how impressive" she'd like to make it abundantly clear that she's very much a tortoise as opposed to a hare. But it's the thought that counts, right?
Macmillan Cancer Support improve the lives of people affected by cancer. They are a source of support, providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support. They are also a force for change, listening to people affected by cancer and working together for better cancer care.
One in three of us will get cancer. 2.5 million of us are living with it. We are all affected by it. We can all help.
Macmillan wants everyone with cancer to receive the right treatment and support regardless of who they are and where they live. They work to raise awareness of cancer issues and campaign to bring about changes in opinion, policy and practice at both a local and national level. All their campaigns have one common goal – to make a positive and permanent change to the lives of people affected by cancer.
