Winner: Chris Metcalfe
Chris has raised over £14,000 in memory of his brother, Rob, who died from pleural synovial sarcoma in 2022. Since then, Chris has scaled Kilimanjaro and completed the TCS London Marathon all while sharing Rob’s legacy at the Glitter Ball and Mansion House events for Sarcoma UK.
Sophie has been sticking it to sarcoma since coming into remission after Ewing’s sarcoma. She and her family and friends have raised over £7,000 by taking part in the Royal Parks Half, London Landmarks Half and more. Sophie also helped Sarcoma UK secure Charity of the Year at her workplace.
If you spotted a rhino in a Sarcoma UK vest in the TCS London Marathon, you know Gavin. In fact, Gavin has taken the rhino outfit for the Colchester Stampede and other running events too. With five marathons and more under his belt, Gavin has raised over £7,000 in memory of his friend, Ryan Eddie Edwards.
Since the death of wife, Sarah, James has been closely involved in Sarcoma UK’s mission as an organiser, awareness raiser and very notably a fundraiser. James has helped raise over £72,000 via various challenges, most recently by completing three marathons in four weeks wearing the ‘Never Forgotten’ ball, a large costume covered with the names of loved ones lost to sarcoma.
Kieran, Luke, Niall, Matt, Ryan and Sam make up Team Ryprr who raises funds in memory of their friend, Ryan, who died last December. The team have run the TCS London Marathon together (despite having their Airbnb cancelled the night before!) and have raised over £28,000 through various events.
