Friends and family take on 10k run in support of chondrosarcoma patient, Jason Deans and to raise life-saving funds.
Jason was diagnosed with a low-grade chondrosarcoma in February 2021. Following a successful surgery in March this year, Jason is recovering well and looking forward to getting back into his running shoes and taking on his own challenge.
With a passion for raising money, Jason regularly takes part in various charity runs throughout the year, as well as organising an annual Charity Golf Day each May to support causes close to his heart. With the event unable to go ahead this year, Jason’s family and friends have taken matters into their own hands and have come together to run a 10k in support of Jason and to raise life-saving funds for our vital work.
Jason will be cheering on from the side-lines this time, but hopes to raise more funds for Bone Cancer Research Trust with his own challenge once fully recovered.
Kate Connor, Community Fundraising Manager at the Bone Cancer Research Trust, said:
It's amazing to see friends and family getting behind Jason and coming together to raise vital awareness and life-saving funds! We can't thank them all enough for their continued support.
