Robert Wright, a supporter of SaTH Charity’s Children’s Oncology Fund, demonstrated his unwavering dedication by participating in the Manchester Marathon on April 16th. The event held significance for Robert as he embarked on this feat to pay tribute to his daughter, Maisie who bravely battled cancer and received exceptional care on the Children’s Oncology Ward in 2018.
Robert said he wanted to make a meaningful impact on the lives of other children using the service and support the amazing staff who provide the care. He stated, “Their incredible work is truly exceptional, and I am determined to contribute to ensuring that other children receive the best possible treatment.”
Robert successfully completed the gruelling marathon in an impressive time of 4 hours and 9 minutes. His extraordinary feat also resulted in raising an outstanding £459 in support of the SaTH Charity.
Julia Clarke, Director of Public Participation said “SaTH Charity is so grateful to Robert for his support to recognise the care that Maisie received. Through his active participation in the Manchester Marathon and his remarkable fundraising achievements, Robert has become an invaluable champion for the Children’s Oncology Ward.”
