On Saturday 28th September 2013 our Sales Administrator here at Head Office, Kim; will be taking part in the full Shine London Marathon, to raise money for Prostate Cancer Research.
Whilst the Shine event looks like great fun and I have no doubt will be enjoyed by thousands, there is of course a reason behind it all.
We spoke with Kim to find out a little bit more as to why this charity is so important to her…
“Back in 2010 my Dad was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, which was a huge shock to us all.
We were however extremely fortunate in the fact that it was found during the very early stages. The hospital were able to offer my dad the best treatment possible. Due to the on-going development of treatment’s and the fantastic support we received, later that year he was given the all clear!! He still has to have regular checks every 3 months but to this day, he is back to his wonderful self and fighting fit.
My Sister & I wanted to take part in the Shine London Marathon to not only raise money for this amazing charity, but to raise awareness to others. Prostate Cancer is now the most common Cancer in men in the UK, yet still so little people understand the severity of the disease.
We are really looking forward to crossing that finish line & knowing that we have done everyone proud!!”
On behalf of all the staff here at DMG Delta we would like to wish Kim & her sister the very best of luck for Saturday & we look forward to hearing all about it next week.
