‘I want to kick sarcoma in the BUTT!’

Laura Scriven is a woman on a mission. Having already completed the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2018, Laura is running for the second time in memory of her cousin Jonny.  ‘Jonny was a great guy, taken from us far too soon.  He was a loving son to his dad Ray and mum Carol’. 

Jonny (pictured here with partner, Justina) was a founding partner of the Analyst, an investment management company in London that donates part of its profit to Sarcoma UK. He died aged 32 after being treated for PNET (Primitive neuroectodermal tumour), a type of sarcoma now thought to be identical to Ewing’s sarcoma.

Laura, who is from Bromley and works at ITV Studios. will be dedicating the 26.2 miles on the 28 April 2019 ‘to Jonny and all those who have been affected by this horrible disease.  I am hoping to raise awareness and kick sarcoma in the butt BIG TIME!!’

Cheer her and the rest of #TeamSarcoma on!
