Toby Walker, Sales Director of Camper & Nicholsons tells me that he's going to run the London Marathon on Sunday, April 25th on behalf of his beloved niece Ellen.
A strict training schedule to put Ironman Toby ahead of those fleet footed Ethiopians includes a regular nightly sprint to the bar at his local pub when the barman calls out 'Last Orders'.
Ellen was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in February 2009, just days before her second birthday. She has battled through a terrible year of intensive treatment including chemotherapy, bone surgery, a bone marrow transplant and radiotherapy and is currently the first child in the UK to be receiving a new treatment of immunotherapy.
