Cancer charity cause close to Sutton man Aidan’s heart
3:30pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
Cancer has already had an impact on the life of 26-year-old Sutton man Aidan Beard.
His 49-year-old dad Kevin is suffering from lung cancer and he lost his grandmother, Jean, to the same disease.
So when he tackles the national Three Peaks with four pals, he has a powerful reason to complete the challenge to raise cash for Cancer Research.
With him on Saturday will be Joel Timmins, 28, who lost his father to cancer, Oliver Hurst, 27, James Holden, 26, and Paul Wilkin, 31.
All five men are squad members at Skipton LMS and hope to complete the marathon – taking in Ben Nevis in Scotland at 4,409ft, Scafell Pike in England at 3,209ft and Snowdon in Wales at 3,560ft – within 24 hours.
Aidan said: “I’ve never stepped on a mountain before and neither has James, so for us this is going to be a hard challenge.
“Some of the others have climbed and we’re hoping our football training should help a lot. This is a cause I’m extremely passionate about, and would be very grateful if we could get support.”
