Chairman of The BPMA and Fluid Branding's CEO Matt Franks is running the New York Marathon on 1st November 2015 - raising money for Pancreatic Cancer UK.
Matt comments "Earlier this year I entered the New York Marathon on a whim, not dreaming of actually getting a place. I got lucky through the ballot - first time - and so the hard work began!"
Matt is currently in training 4-5 times a week and is steadily increasing his distance with each run. He adds "I've never run this distance before but I'm confident of finishing. I've funded my own entry and travel costs, and decided to run for Pancreatic Cancer UK. This is an underfunded, aggressive condition that has affected my own family, and those of close friends. Any money raised will help critical research and ultimately save lives."
