Gordon Jones is running his way to £2,000 to help raise funds for the fight against cancer and mental health awareness.

Gordon has currently signed up to 8 events this year, and has chosen to support two causes very close to his heart.

In his own words “breast cancer is the one that has been a big part of my life, losing my mam and sister, also very nearly losing a second sister and also lately a good friend and family have had to deal with it.  I know that anyone who has had any dealings with any kind of cancer will know just how horrible it is.  This is why I have chosen to support the Breast Centre Appeal at Llandough Hospital who recently have helped and supported someone I know and whose family as well as them have benefited from their good work.”

Gordon will also be supporting Mind Matters Cymru during these challenges.

His current and formidable itinerary is –

London Landmarks Half Marathon – April 2nd 2023
Newport Marathon – April 16th 2023
Welsh Coast Runners 40mile Ultra – May 7th 2023
Leeds Marathon – May 14th 2023
Swansea Half Marathon – June 11th 2023
