The money you raise by taking on Run the Month will support men like Lee and his late Dad, Tom.

After losing his Dad to prostate cancer in 2009 and discovering this increased his own risk, Lee turned to fundraising for Prostate Cancer UK.

In 2019, he marked the tenth anniversary of his Dad’s passing by taking on 10 running challenges - including a gruelling 24-hour run - and continued that support by taking on Run the Month for a second time this year.

“I was shell shocked when Dad was diagnosed. His symptoms were textbook prostate issues but you never think it will be that serious. We bonded a lot during his treatment and went to watch football every second Saturday together until he died.

“I’ve always been active and turned to running for something different and got hooked. Running is almost free therapy to me - I think about my family, my life, my Dad. I’m looking forward to hitting the road again in October for a cause that’s very close to my heart.”
