Founding Partner at Scott Rees & Co to run Lisbon marathon in aid of new cancer centre
Cancer will affect almost everybody in the UK, in some way or another. Research has been ongoing for many years to find a cure for this awful disease and donations to help with funding the long battle to help treat and cure cancer sufferers and their families is always welcomed.
Scott Rees & Co‘s Founding Partner, and keen runner, Daniel Rees, has taken it upon himself to help in that fight by signing up to run the Lisbon marathon this Sunday.
The chosen charity benefiting from donations to Daniel’s marathon is the very worthy Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, which is currently looking to raise funds to expand its reach and undertake an ambitious project of building a brand new cancer hospital right in the heart of Liverpool.
With a new dedicated facility, Clatterbridge would be well positioned to serve not only the residents of Liverpool, but the rest of the UK, with what will be the very best new facilities.
After meeting with Clatterbridge specialists recently, Daniel felt compelled to try and play his part in making the planned new facility a reality. To make his task even harder, he’s decided to swap running in the cooler and more often than not rainy conditions of England, in favour of testing himself in the heat and humidity of Portugal.
Daniel’s original fundraising target for the event was £2,500, which he has already managed to clear and now he is looking towards going past the £3,000 mark, in what will be trying conditions for a native Brit. He will also be pushing to try and achieve a personal best time.
Speaking about Clatterbridge’s project, Daniel told us “Having seen the passion for the new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre being built in Liverpool and the difference it will make to Cancer sufferers in my home area and the rest of the UK, I feel driven to help in whatever way I can to see this realised”.
With the big event taking place this Sunday we invite you to visit Daniel’s JustGiving page here and help him smash through the £3,000 mark for what is a fantastic cause.
