Gary runs the Balmoral 10K - 2

lond1I will be participating in the London Marathon on Sunday 24th April, 2016.

Once again I will be supporting CAA Clydeside Action on Asbestos, this is the first time the Charity has been represented at the London Marathon & I am proud to be able to not only raise money on their behalf but also raise awareness of the valuable effort they provide to the many victims & their families in Aberdeen & throughout Scotland.


On a personal note I will be running in memory of my Grandfather Andy & my Uncle Bill who have both died from the incurable asbestos related cancer Mesothelioma. My father currently suffers from pleural plaques which are also caused by exposure to asbestos & like many other victims lives with the possibility that this could potentially develop into something more serious.

As an honorary member of this charity I am looking forward to adding to the monies I have already raised since 2011 which is currently in excess of £6,000.

Many thanks for your continued support and good luck Gary from everyone here at CAA
