TCS London Marathon
Kieron has decided to run the 2022 London Marathon in aid of Children with Cancer. Kieron said "Having been personally touched by the care and support of this charity with a very close family, it's more important than ever to get out there and do something."
Where it began for Children with Cancer
14-year-old Paul O’Gorman was diagnosed with leukaemia in November 1986. His 29-year-old sister, Jean, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the same time.
Paul and Jean both sadly lost their lives to the disease and the O’Gorman family suffered a heart-breaking double tragedy. Just before Paul passed away, he asked his parents to help others like them. This was the start of an incredible legacy for children with cancer as the O’Gorman family began fundraising to help prevent other children’s lives being cut short.
In the early days, the aim was to raise £100,000 for research and support. But within four years, over £1 million had been raised, taking the O’Gorman family halfway towards their first major goal – a £2 million research centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital.
