On the 10 August 2014 I will be running the Perth Half Marathon to raise money for Redkite, a charity that supports young children living with cancer, while also assisting the families affected.
However, there is more to the story than that for me. My niece Siena has leukaemia.
It has been a very difficult journey for my family and me. Siena was diagnosed when she was 14-months-old and it turned our lives upside down. There were countless trips to Princess Margaret Hospital, often staying for days and weeks on-end. Through-out the whole experience, Redkite has supported my family and, most importantly, my sister through the challenges that cancer brings.
I would appreciate it if you could donate to my cause and help support Redkite, a charity that has grown closer to my heart in its support of people in the same position as my family. I am very passionate about this cause and any help you could lend would mean a lot.
Thank you, Marcus.
