Elaine Cooke takes on the Brighton Marathon!

Run 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

On Sunday the 15 April 2018, Elaine Cooke will be joining thousands of other runners in Brighton to raise funds for charity.

Commenting on her challenge, Elaine said:

"I have decided to run this year's Brighton Marathon for Run 4 Cancer in memory of my dear and special friend, Martyn Wright, who lost his courageous battle against cancer on the 8th January in Baza, Spain aged 61. Martyn spent his working life as a firefighter in England helping others and was always willing to help his friends. I have known him for the last 7 and a half years during which time he did so much for me, introduced me to new experiences and changed my life in many ways. He was more than a friend to me and I miss him very much.

Thank you for taking the trouble to visit this page and I hope you will be kind enough to make a donation to Run 4 Cancer - it will be much appreciated."

Thanks very much.
