It took months of training but was all worth it and I was amazed by all the support Thanks to our supporters taking part in Amazing challenges, incredible amounts of money have been raised to help patients at The Royal Marsden. You can take part in an amazing challenge too! From marathons to parachute jumps there is a challenge to push you to your limit. London Triathlon The 50k was a great challenge, it was tough David Griffiths I always wanted to give something back to The Royal Marsden for the fantastic treatment my wife received. What better way than by competing in my first ever triathlon, Olympic distance of course! Mark Gwinnell (pictured top left) The Thames Path Challenge It was the most amazing experience and for such a great cause. I would encourage anyone to do it Denise Van Outen Great Wall of China Trek Find out about our challenge events at Support us on your special day If you have a birthday, anniversary or wedding day coming up, why not use your special event to support the work of The Royal Marsden? One person who has done just that is former Royal Marsden patient Debbie Middleton, who was 32 when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. I d never had anything worse than a cold but I d started to feel increasingly tired and unwell, she says. I lost a lot of weight, and went from being an energetic and ambitious career woman to being almost unable to get out of bed. Debbie underwent chemotherapy at The Royal Marsden and was eventually given the all-clear. She was so impressed with the treatment and care she received while at the hospital that she wanted to do something to show her gratitude. The Royal Marsden gave me my life back, says Debbie. When I felt better, I suggested to my netball team that we raise money for the hospital by trying to break the record for the world s longest netball game. It was a hugely successful event that lasted 60 hours. And when Debbie married her partner Dominic last year, she saw this as another opportunity to help the hospital that gave her a second chance. The couple asked guests to donate to the charity instead of buying wedding gifts. There are lots of ways you can include The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in your special day. Contact us and we can also provide you with gift items for your guests in return for donations. For more information please contact the Special Occasion Giving team. The Royal Marsden gave me my life back Debbie Middleton Phone: My Marsden March Organise your own Marsden March and walk to raise money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
