Tim Page is taking on the huge challenge for Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI.

This Saturday’s run at the East Strand beach in Portrush will be the fourth of Tim’s parkruns so far this year.

Tim tells: “I discovered the parkrun community while recovering from an autologous stem cell transplant - aggressive treatment of aggressive lymphoma for the fourth time in my life.

“The aims of this project are to complete all 22 Northern Ireland parkruns; raise £5000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI, promote the work of Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI; Promote registration of potential stem cell donors (via Delete Blood Cancer) and promote the benefits of physical fitness for all.”
