The Man of Marathon Challenges

David Royal, from Norwich, is now 6 months into his 12 months of fundraising for Big C.
Early in 2014 David’s mum was diagnosed with cancer, unfortunately in February 2015 she passed away. David took on the inspiring challenge to take on twelve races and challenges through 2015 to raise money for Big C in order to help other families affected by cancer.

“Late last summer mum and I were planning some fundraising events to say thanks to Big C for the support she received from the charity...mum passed away almost one year after starting her cancer treatment, so each of my races represents one month of her battle. Hopefully the money I raise will allow Big C to help others and their families...”
