RUN DAVID, RUN!

David Stuart-Smith, managering partner at Andrew Grant, will be joining nearly 40 thousand other runners in the London Marathon. He’s raising money for a charity that funds research into the most common cancer in men. To say he has been “overwhelmed” by people’s generosity is an understatement.

David Stuart-Smith will be taking his place at the starting line of the London Marathon. He is raising funds for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre.

Spurred on by his daughter, Polly, to join her, David, who will be 70 later this year, signed up to run the London Marathon to try and repay Prostate Cancer Research for some of the lifesaving treatment which he had benefited himself.

David said “As some of you will know I was diagnosed with prostate cancer some five years ago and had radical surgery shortly afterwards from which I made a rapid and (hopefully) full recovery - partly aided by my daily running regime which I started some 35 years ago in preparation for what was then the inaugural Snowdonia marathon.”

David has been overcome by the support and kindness of his family, friends and colleagues and has already raised over £5,000.

“Initially I had committed to raise £2,500 for the charity, which I thought was pretty ambitious, but even with weeks to go, I have surpassed that figure and am amazed at the total so far. I have been overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity, some of the donations are from people I don’t know personally. It’s enormously humbling and enforces, despite how much we hear otherwise, how intrinsically kind people are. I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for their support.”

One of the first people to give most generously to David’s fund was Andrew Grant, who has also received treatment for prostate cancer. Andrew said, “Like David, I too was diagnosed with prostate cancer and am so very grateful for the excellent treatment I received. I am delighted to donate to such a worthwhile cause and wish David all the very best. We will all be cheering him on!”

In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives and over 47,000 are diagnosed every year - that's 130 men every day. Over 330,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer.
