Brighton Resident Raises Over £6,000 For Macmillan Cancer Support

Joe  Addison (640x640)

Joe Addison, who has supported Macmillan since 2010 in memory of his father who passed away from cancer, is again running this year’s BM10k to raise money for the charity.

Joe has taken part in many challenges for Macmillan, running several marathons plus plenty of other races of shorter distances, many of them barefoot. He has also done several of his own challenges such as more than 1700 Burpees in one go; a 24-hour track run (80 miles); and 24 hours on a spin bike.

Macmillan hold a special place in Joe’s heart as they looked after both his grandad and dad during their illnesses. This has inspired Joe to give back and help wherever he can.

“The work they do is incredibly inspiring and fundraising for them is one of the best things I have ever done. Whatever the challenge is, Macmillan will be with you 100%,” says Joe.

Joe has raised over £6,000 for Macmillan over the past eight years and hopes to carry on supporting the charity for years to come.

Money raised from events like the BM10k or marathons, provide invaluable support to the work we do that helps people affected by cancer cope with the physical, social, emotional and financial impact of cancer, at every stage. Runners are needed to join Team Macmillan at the Brighton Marathon on 15 April, who will be support every step of the way with:
