Mother and son fundraisers Alexa and Max Noble are ‘glowing all out’ to help Dorset cancer sufferers.
Alexa and Max of Branksome View Avenue in Poole, are taking part in Bournemouth’s night time Blitz Glow Run 5K to raise funds for Dorset Cancer Care Foundation (DCCF).
The Blitz Glow Run 5K takes place on Saturday January 28, 2017 and will see runners dressed in glow in the dark clothing, race from Bournemouth pier to Boscombe pier and back again.
Alexa said: “When I heard about the work of Dorset Cancer Care Foundation I knew immediately that I wanted to be involved.
“The charity helps cancer sufferers and their families meet the cost of everything from medical equipment and childcare, to household bills and transport to and from hospital and so I started to attend the charity’s regular coffee mornings and other fundraising events.”
She continued: “I also love running and when I heard about a new run you do at night, wearing glow in the dark clothes, it sounded great fun and the ideal way to raise money for DCCF.
“I told my son Max, who is 18, about it and he said: “Let’s do it!”
Alexa, who has her own health and wellbeing company, said: “I’m not kidding myself I’ll keep up with Max – he’ll be off like a shot! But I think there will be a great atmosphere and I’m really thrilled to be kicking off 2017 by helping local people who have cancer.
”Together we hope to raise at least £200 for DCCF and hopefully even more.”
Eve Went, one of DCCF’s founders, said: “We were thrilled to hear that Alexa and Max will be running this race for DCCF. It sounds absolutely brilliant fun.
“We have a host of fundraising events coming up this year, including the Bournemouth Marathon Festival and we’d love to hear from anyone, of any age, who would like to boost our work helping local families affected by cancer.”
