Run Gina Run!
Gina Long MBE, founder of GeeWizz Charity, will be taking her place beside 42,000 inspirational fellow runners this Sunday 28th April, for the Virgin Money London Marathon, one of the largest charity events of the year. Many think it’s one of the best days out of the year, both for the runners and spectators alike. It’s a day that brings out the best in human spirit, the love and support given is tangible. There are so many great stories and reasons why people have chosen to run, for Gina, it is to celebrate a huge milestone…
Gina’s daughter Ali has recently celebrated a huge milestone of being 5 years clear of the Myxoid Liposarcoma Sarcoma Cancer. As a completely unfit non-runner, Gina says running the London Marathon seemed the very best way to mark this momentous milestone.
She is running for the small, very efficiently run charity, Sarcoma UK which is the only cancer charity in the UK focused on all types of sarcoma. Sarcoma is a cancer of the bone and soft tissue. It is one of the hardest to diagnose, and difficult to treat. This charity is very close to the hearts of everyone at GeeWizz, where we also give a yearly donation to fund vital research into this horrible disease.
Gina is absolutely indebted for all the support she has been given, for what will be the most emotional fundraiser she has ever set out to do.
