Sam Alderton’s story

Sam Alderton’s story

Sam took part in his first half marathon – the farthest he’s ever run – at the beginning of March. He completed it in two hours and 39 minutes, something he wouldn’t have thought possible over a year and a half ago when he started running. 

Sam after completing the half marathon!
The year my daughter was born, we lost three family members to cancer

 He completed it in two hours and 39 minutes, something he wouldn’t have thought possible over a year and a half ago when he started running for the first time. 

Previously Sam couldn’t even run around the block without fear of collapsing but following heart scares as young as 30, Sam took action.

He says: “Cancer unfortunately affects so many of us. The year my daughter was born, we lost three family members to cancer; my grandad, my partner’s dad and her grandad. My dad also suffered with this terrible disease but luckily he survived and got the all clear and is still with us today.

“We’ve both lived in Norfolk our whole lives, and the fact that Big C is local makes it an even greater cause.”

Sam didn’t have a fundraising target, instead he looked to raise as much as he could. Before the run he said: “Whatever I raise is more than it would be if I wasn’t doing this and that’s what matters.” We’re pleased to say that his total came in just under £200!

Find out how Big C can support you and your family if you’ve been affected by cancer.

We can help to improve your quality of life, physical health, and mental wellbeing.

Some people take to the skies, run, jump, walk, swim and cycle whilst others make tea, bake cakes or shave heads.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
