Weston AFC Media Officer takes on 26 miles charity challenge

Liam Drury will run the distance throughout January in aid of Prostate Cancer UK

Liam, the Weston-super-Mare AFC Club Media Officer, has already raised £145 and hopes to hit his £500 before the end of the month.


Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, and kills a man every 45 minutes. To put that into context, that's 32 men every day being killed by one specific cancer.

The money raised will be used to fund lifesaving research and will help to support the men that are affected by prostate cancer as well as their families.

When asked about his challenge, Liam said "Last summer, I started getting into running because I wanted on getting fitter and I thought that it was a good time to begin. Over the last six months, I've slowly built myself up when running and at the end of December, I came across the fundraiser for Prostate Cancer UK.


I decided to combine my newfound passion and a good cause, signing up along with thousands of other people to make my running that little bit more worthwhile. Thankfully, I don't know anybody that has been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer but for thousands of people across the country, that won't be the case. I'd like to thank everyone who has already donated and I look forward to completing the challenge."
