Marathon RunnersMark Bennett has kindly chosen to represent the Caring Cancer Trust at this years Virgin London marathon!

Please support Mark by donating here 

My name is Mark Bennett I’m 44 years old. I served in the Armed Forces for 25 years and I’ve done events for many charities in the past but none as close to many people’s hearts as this one. I am taking on another challenge after securing a ballot place in the famous London Marathon and what better charity to run for than the Caring Cancer Trust (CCT).  I have known close friends and family who have lost the battle to cancer and I am wanting to make a little difference to those suffering with Cancer. CCT provides escorted Healing Holidays of adventure for children recovering from cancer. They help them regain their self confidence and passion for life after the trauma and suffering caused by their illness. A family friend and local girl ‘Maisie Norton’ lost her battle with cancer in October 2015 at just 17 years old. The CCT allowed Maisie to attend holidays like this and she was also a Mentor for younger kids on trips provided by CCT. By running the gruelling 26 miles in Maisie’s memory I am hoping to raise enough money to send at least one child with cancer on one of these holidays giving them the experience of a lifetime and the much needed help they deserve.

We wish Mark the best of luck and we are extremely grateful that he has chosen us as his charity to support. Please donate if you can.
