Kevin Martin is running in the Boston 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 Monday 17 April 2017, Kevin Martin will be joining many others taking part in the Boston Marathon.

The Boston Marathon is the word's oldest annual marathon and Kevin will be taking part in the 121st running of this iconic event. Kevin will be running the fast route event, alongside some of the world's top marathon runners!

Commenting on his challenge, Kevin said:

"To celebrate the milestone of completing all six world marathon majors, I want to commemorate this occasion by doing something good for a cause that has touched me personally in terms of friends and family. I have not raced a marathon for over a year because of injuries, so the effort in getting myself to this positon to race in Boston, this April has been immense. Please give generously and help me celebrate in the best possible way."

Please sponsor Kevin and leave your words of encouragement below!

Thanks very much
