More than £20,000 was raised for The Terry Fox Foundation and The Brain Tumour Charity
People of all ages took part in a run to raise more than £20,000 for two cancer charities.
Dogmersfield’s Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire played host to the Terry Fox Run on September 15.
The event featured a 5km run or walk around the hotel grounds with those taking part raising funds for The Terry Fox Foundation, set up in memory of the 22-year-old cancer victim from Canada, who ran 3,339 miles in 143 days with a prosthetic limb to raise money for research into the disease.
The hotel was also raising funds for Farnborough-based The Brain Tumour Charity , set up by Dogmersfield couple Neil and Angela Dickson in memory of their daughter Samantha, who died of a brain tumour just six days before her 17th birthday.
Mrs Dickson, who attended the event with her husband, said: “This is one of our favourite events.
“The support we have had from The Four Seasons has been truly wonderful and having lost Samantha to a brain tumour, we know first-hand just how important the funds raised at these types of annual events are.
“The atmosphere was, as always, great and to be a part of such a massive worldwide charity event is very special.”
More than 9,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour each year and they are the largest cancer killer of children and adults under 40.
The Brain Tumour Charity is the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours in the UK.
Charlie Parker, general manager at The Four Seasons Hotel, took part in the run and was thrilled with the turnout despite the bad weather.
“It was another great success and it is wonderful to see the event growing year after year.
“The event is something we look forward to where we are able to support not only Four Seasons’ global nominated charity in Terry Fox, but also a local charity in The Brain Tumour Charity.”
