REMIC SPONSORED RUN – T for 3 – WITH PRIZES!!! 🙂
I’m doing a sponsored run called “T for 3” on Sunday 7th July 2013 in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust. All I’m asking for is £3 – (that’s THREE QUID!) each from you guys. That’s less than a pint of beer. Less than a glass of wine. Less than a Subway sandwich. So go on, please email me – jappoc [at] hotmail.co.uk with the subject line “Teenage Cancer Trust”. All monies can be collected via Paypal. It’s for a very worthy cause.

UPDATE: A very kind US fan, Aaron Spuler, has sponsored me $50. Which is very awesome, when I’m only asking for about $5!! So I had an idea. Yeah, I know! The highest 3 sponsors get a bumper pack of Remic books, digital Anarchy Book titles, and a preview pre-publication copy of my next novel – THE IRON WOLVES published January 2014 by Angry Robot Books. Just as an incentive, y’know? 😉
ABOUT TEENAGE CANCER TRUST-
Our vision is a future where young people’s lives don’t stop because they have cancer. We make sure they’re treated as young people first, cancer patients second and everything we do aims to improve their quality of life and chances of survival.
Around six young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ We’re the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
- We bring young people together so they can be treated together, by teenage cancer experts, in the best place for them.
- We educate young people about cancer and work with health professionals to develop their knowledge so we can improve the speed and quality of diagnosis.
- And by funding research and working with our partners in the NHS, government and organisations both nationally and internationally, we strive to improve survival rates.
We lead the world in the care of young people with cancer. Together with these young people, their families and the passion of our supporters, we’re challenging the NHS and transforming lives.
UPDATE 22 JUNE-
First training run complete! 2.5 miles, with the last 150 metres at a sprint. -That. -Hurt. *Note to self: Must cut down on the red wine!! Okay – so far, the following generous wonderful people have contributed sponsorship to my run for the Teenage Cancer Trust – Sonia Remic, Joe Remic, Olly Remic, Ian Graham, Nicola Remic, Aaron Spuler, John Rice, Natalie Ralph (+boyfriend), Gary Main, Darren O’Connor, Jetse de Vries, Darren Ralph, Jonathan Allen, Garry Kilworth and Wendy Ashworth – bringing my sponsorship to £119 !!
