The Datafox team comprising of Jonathan, Jake, Piia and Setta will on Sunday the 8th of October take part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon to raise money for Royal Trinity Hospice and the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The team take on the challenge in the name of mother-in-law, grandmother, a voice of reason Suzy Aprahamian. Sadly, she passed away earlier this year after a painful battle with cancer. Suzy received her care from both the Royal Marsden and also from Royal Trinity Hospice, so the team wish to give back to those who showed her such attention and love in her last days. Datafox Director Jonathan Leefield stated, “Suzy was very special to all of us in her different ways – she had a joy for life that was infectious and will never be forgotten.” “We will be running for 13.1 miles through Hyde Park, Green Park, St James’ Park and Kensington Gardens as well as a little foray down the Strand and hoping that our training over the summer pays off.” Jonathan added, “We are delighted to show our gratitude to all who cared for Suzy. We are keen to raise as much as we can for both charities and ask all who know us to dig deep.”
Royal Trinity Hospice provides care for 1,500 people with advanced illnesses every year, within their homes or at the hospice. The patients are supported in living every moment to the full and achieving the best possible quality of life. This financial year they must raise £12 million as under 30% of their funding comes from the NHS.
Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises money solely to support The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre. By giving support, it means they can continue to be there for everyone who needs them. Helping ensures nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and develop life-saving treatments which are used here in the UK and around the world. From funding state-of-the-art equipment and ground-breaking research to creating the best patient environments, they never stop looking for ways to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.
