DocCentrics take on More Than a Marathon in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust
That's right. Throughout April, several members of the DocSquad will be taking on More Than a Marathon to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.
More Than a Marathon is about going the extra mile (or 28) for young people with cancer, so we'll be running, walking, skipping or frolicking 28 miles in 28 days - each.
With a strong team of 9, that means that collectively we'll be wracking up 252 miles (atleast!) between us. That's roughly the distance from the Lake District to the O2 Arena!

So, why are we doing this?
Because every £100 raised could pay for 3 hours of much needed care.
These days cancer impacts so many peoples lives in one way or another. It sucks every time. But gradually diagnosis is getting quicker, medicine is getting more effective and care is getting better.
Right now though, Teenage Cancer Trust can only help half of young people with cancer. To put that into perspective, every day 7 young people are diagnosed.
There aren't enough nurses to help every young person with cancer receive the nursing they need, but every £100 raised could help pay for more than 3 hours of care from a Teenage Cancer Trust nurse.
That's why we're doing this. And yes, you guessed it. We need your money help 😉
