Craig, 40, is running for Anthony Nolan because his mother recently received the fantastic news of being given the all clear after suffering from cancer. He says, “When my mother was diagnosed with cancer it really hit the family hard as we had not had any illness like this in the family before and this gave me the impetus to raise money for a cancer charity. I looked at all the options and having done some other charity events for Anthony Nolan it was the right charity to choose.”
Commenting on the challenge ahead, Craig adds, “I am well in the middle of my training programme at the moment running four nights a week covering around 30 miles and trying to ensure I am eating the right foods. Being out on the road each day it’s such a temptation to grab a snack but I have to be disciplined!”
Rebecca Highfield, Events Co-ordinator at Anthony Nolan, said, “It’s incredible that Craig is running the Virgin London Marathon for Anthony Nolan; fundraising is essential for the work that we do. It costs £100 to recruit each person on to the bone marrow register. The more money Craig raises, the more people we can add to the register, and the more lives we can save.”
