Hi, my name is Shane. 2017 has been a year of significance to me because I have lost one of my very closest mates to Brain Cancer. He was a Dad to an amazing daughter and the husband of the best carer that he could have wished for. He was one in a million fellow with mates that will never forget the imprint he left on their lives. His name was Pete. As well as losing Pete, the husband of one of my work mates is currently fighting this terrible illness. I have been attracted to the Mark Hughes Foundation because they are actively trying to help find a cure and better outcomes for people with brain cancer. We have already helped the Foundation by selling beanies but unfortunately these ran out very quickly. The Blackmores running festival will be my first ever running race. A half marathon, in the hope that I can ask you to help me raise funds for the Mark Hughes Foundation. Please give generously. Thank you for your help and support.
