Rox & Jake will be taking on 26.2miles for VHL disease.

Rox's message: I will be running my first ever marathon for every person who battles VHL disease and their families who support them and go through the ups and downs too. I will run also thinking of anyone who has had a (or unfortunately not been able to have) Whipple procedure. I'm going to give the training and every 26.2 miles on the day my all and really appreciate your generous support and sponsorship, no matter how great or small. Thank you for being a part of this!

Jake's message: I'm running my first Marathon and putting in hundreds of miles of training for VHL. After witnessing the effects of this extremely rare disease can have within my own family, the mental and physical challenge of the training and race won't even come close to the strain VHL can have on those unlucky enough to live with it. I'm committed to giving it my all in training and on race day, there has already been some lovely runs in the rain, wind and snow. So please give generously, any amount really will be very much appreciated.
