Our client James Fenton recently took on the Double Marathon Race to the Tower to raise money for the Cobalt Charity, one of the leading medical imaging and diagnostic centre who specialise in Cancer and Dementia
The run is a 52.4-mile double marathon through the heart of the idyllic Cotswolds. Unrelentingly beautiful. Unforgettably challenging!
This race is part of the award-winning Threshold Trail Series.
James managed to complete the course with an impressive time of 12h 41m averaging 14 min per mile.
James was running the race to raise funds and awareness of the Cobalt Charity
Cobalt is a medical charity helping people affected by cancer, dementia and other conditions. They believe everyone should have access to the best medical imaging for their diagnosis. They invest in equipment, research and education. Each year they provide diagnostic imaging for over 65,000 patients at Cobalt Imaging Centre in Cheltenham, the ITM Imaging Centre in Birmingham and with a fleet of six mobile MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scanners that travel throughout the UK. As well as cancer, the equipment is able to assist in the detection of illnesses such as dementia including Alzheimer’s. They offer free training and education courses on a local, national and international basis for doctors and healthcare professionals, ensuring their experience and research work is widely shared.
Donations received help fund scanning and diagnosis, research, prevention, specialised nursing posts and cancer facilities for local people.
The charity is close to James’ heart as his wife went through breast cancer and the charity was an amazing source of help and support.
So far James has managed to raise more than double his target, hitting over £1000 for the Cobalt Charity, which is incredible and all of us at the Markland Clinic just want to say well done!
