Boys Marching for the Marsden

Many of you will know (and many don’t) that I have spent the last two and a bit years battling stage four bladder cancer and except for the first three months, all of my treatment and operations have been with the Royal Marsden.

The treatment and care I have received from the many team members at the Royal Marsden has been exceptional and the kindness of the staff, who are having to deal with both happiness and deep sadness on a daily basis, has been incredible.

While this is by no means the biggest challenge that I have taken on in my life, it is certainly the most meaningful. Six of us, including my three boys (Angie is away!) - aged 15, 9 and 8 - will be walking the 15 miles between the two Royal Marsden hospitals in Chelsea and Sutton on Sunday 12th May. The boys and I will be joined by great friends, Chris ' Belli' Mathias and Ben 'Fin' Cook. Both have run, and more recently shuffled alongside me on several full and half marathons over the years, but over the last two years have been an incredible support on my cancer marathon.

We are looking to raise as much as we can for the Royal Marsden to help continue the great research and patient treatment that they are world leaders at. I haven’t asked anyone for sponsorship since I ran the London marathon in 2008, so please help however you can and pledge the last 16 year’s worth to this challenge and great cause. And then add a little bit more for Sam and Harry, aged 9 and 8 respectively for walking 15 miles with those little legs!

Lots of Love, Jonny, Joe, Sam, Harry, Ben and Chris

Wow, thank you and The Sloan Boys just got bigger

Tuesday 19th Mar
The last 48 hours have been overwhelming and there have certainly been many tearful moments as we try and take in the unbelievable kindness and generosity of those that have sponsored our team. We have raised over £3,000 in just 48 hours which is astounding. 

Amongst all of that excitement, so pleased that The Sloan Boys team has another member. Howard Thomas, an almost life long friend - well as far back as University - is joining our team and that brings our Royal Marsden Marchers up to seven.

Thank you to my Sponsors
