On May 5th, Rhydian Sandbrook will run the Newport Marathon in South Wales. While Rhydian recently completed the Newport half, this will be his first full-length marathon and it has a very personal meaning for him.
The money he raises will be split between Cecily's Fund and Prostate Cymru, a charity based in Wales which is helping in the fight against prostate cancer. Rhydian has a strong connection with each cause: his father in law, David, sadly died in July 2018 and had been a longtime supporter of Cecily's Fund. His own father has been helped by Prostate Cymru, after his own diagnosis.
Cecily's Fund supporters may remember that Rhydian's sister-in-law, Sarah, ran the London Marathon for us back in 2014.
We're so grateful that Rhydian has chosen to take on this challenge and to raise money for us - please help Rhydian reach (and exceed!) his £300 fundraising target so that a fantastic total can be raised for both Cecily's Fund and the vital work of Prostate Cymru.
