Joshua Jones a marathon runner from Sale completed 2 marathons within two weekends, Joshua was urged on by the Christie, just days before the Greater Manchester Marathon and the London Marathon took place.
Joshua Jones is raising money for the Christie, one of Europe’s top cancer centers, treating around 44,000 people each year in Greater Manchester and beyond.
Joshua is running for The Christie because a number of people in his family have had cancer including his auntie, grandma’s sister and girlfriend’s mother, all of whom were treated at the Christie.
Joshua said “ If it wasn’t for the Christie they wouldn’t be alive today I just want to give something back to this amazing charity”
In 2011 Joshua’s Mum ran the London Marathon raising over £6000 pounds for the Christie, so Joshua has taken on the challenge set by his mum.
