Good Luck Team Cure Leukaemia

12th October 2016



200 runners will take to the streets of Second City on Sunday to take on the Great Birmingham Run for Cure Leukaemia. There are so many inspirational stories out there but here are some of the stories we have featured on our website

First time runner Amy Thompson has given herself jusy 8-weeks to train for the run and she wants Professor Charlie Craddock's job one day! Find out more HERE


Over 30 staff from Worcestershire Hospitals including our very own nurse Kate Arthur and former patient Brooke Evans are all running for Team Haem! Read more HERE.


Another of our first-time runners Elizabeth 'Dutch' Cunningham has left it very late to train for the half marathon but she's determined to complete it in memory of her dad James. Read more HERE.


Tom Payne is running on Sunday in memory of his Dad Andy who passed away in July. Andy was hugely respected in the local cricketing community and they have helped Tom raise over £5,000 and that is still rising! Read more about this emotional story HERE.

One of the wonderful nurses that work at the Centre for Clinical Haeamtology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham Jane Nunnick (right) is set to run on Sunday. Her team has raised over £1,200 - donate HERE


That's a selection of just some of the amazing stories of those running for Cure Leukaemia this Sunday. Every single person has been inspired to take on 13.1miles for the charity and on behalf of all the patients, clinicians and everyone associated with Cure Leukaemia a massive thank you and good luck to all our runners.
