End of September, Nottingham Half Marathon
Mark Caron has always been a fantastic marathon runner, but his MPN and running injuries have held him back a bit, so his wonderful children, Rebecca and Thomas, decided to do some running for him and they have recently completed The Great North Run for MPN Voice!! This has spurred Mark on and despite a torn calf muscle injury, which has really upset his training, Mark is taking part in the Nottingham Half Marathon at the end of September for MPN Voice.
Thank you Mark, Rebecca and Thomas for all your fantastic support.
If you would like to sponsor Mark, please go to the family Just Giving Page at justgiving.com/Rebecca-Caron/
Great Scottish Run 10k on 5th October 2014
Cara and her family and friends have done some amazing fundraising for MPN Voice and this time Cara is challenging herself to do a 10k run. Cara started running earlier this year and is really enjoying it, so she thought, why not get fit and raise some money for MPN Voice!
We all wish you all the best with your training and your 10k. Thank you for all your support.
