Mark’s Melanoma 1000 Challenge

In 2021 Mark was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma, in a quest to prove to himself that the cancer (and its associated treatment) wasn’t a reason to avoid doing things he has recently completed our Melanoma 1000 challenge. This challenge requires participants to complete 1000 miles any way they like between October-May.

Mark said “I wanted to see if I could complete a challenge which meant a reasonable commitment each day…At the same time, if I could get a bit fitter and raise a few pounds for a charity that focuses on my particular cancer and has helped me with technical information, etc.”

“Faced with a late-stage diagnosis, I was keen to get as much information as possible as to what I was up against.¬† Melanoma Focus is one of the organisations which has provided that information, and this has helped me enormously.”

Mark you are truly amazing, congratulations on completing this epic challenge! Thank you very much for raising vital awareness and funds. Our work would not be possible without supporters like you.
