Jordan takes on Bournemouth Half Marathon for best friend Taylor

Jordan said: "In October 2018 I will be running the Bournemouth Half Marathon for CLIC Sargent, a cancer focused charity, as both friends and family of mine have been affected by different forms of cancer.

Vital support

"Unfortunately, one of my best friends, Taylor Cockroft, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid/T-Lymphoblastic Leukaemia back in December. Having grown up with Taylor since I was a baby I wanted to give something back to the charity that are doing so much to look after Taylor and his family.

CLIC Sargent Sports and Challenge Events Manager Sarah Manion said: “When cancer strikes young lives we fight tirelessly to limit the damage it causes beyond their health through practical, emotional and financial support. We rely entirely on donations to fund our vital work and so we can’t thank Jordan enough for his fantastic efforts. 

“This big challenge Jordan is taking on will make a massive difference for young people with cancer by helping us ensure they are getting the right support they need.”
