They did it!!!!
Running over 13 miles (21 kilometres) over tarmac and across sand, through the cold, wind and rain of an October morning John Gill, Prof Simon Rogers, Andy Lyon and Neil Shallcross all successfully completed the Wirral Half Marathon to raise funds in support of the Merseyside Regional Head and Neck Cancer Centre.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has already given their support - not to mention to the increasingly frostbitten 'cheering squad' who gathered on the seafront at New Brighton to add their support to our runners efforts, and to Simon and Sian for hosting the gathering afterwards.
So if you've not done so already, please search our valiant runners out to give them your sponsorship. And remember, it's never too late to add your donation to their fundraising efforts - just visit our online donation site at: www.justgiving.com/ aintreeuniversityhospitals
Calling all runners....
Sunday 13th October - "Wirral Half Marathon"
We currently have a team of four brave runners committed to undertaking the Wirral Half Marathon - Prof. Simon Rogers will be being joined by Neil Shallcross, John Gill (a spry 63 year old) and Andrew Lyon (head and neck cancer patient).
If you would like to join them, then its not (quite) too late - you can book your individual place online through the event organisers at:www.btrliverpool.com/event/wirral-half/
So if you do want to join in - just let us know, and we'll see what we can do with T-shirts and sponsor forms!
We're also going to be putting together a bit of a cheering squad, to gather towards the finish post, bright and breezy on Sunday morning.
So why not put your best foot forward and join us?
