Sail 4 Cancer - The Sailing Charity

Sail 4 Cancer was set up in 2001 by a group of keen sailors who had all lost a close friend or relative to cancer.

Sail 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of water based respite days and holidays for families affected by cancer. The charity also makes grants to cancer care centres and supports research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. sailing) and how it can help prevent cancer and aid recovery post diagnosis.

From the moment you are diagnosed with cancer your life is taken over by hospital visits, treatments, tests, uncertainty, and often, financial worries. For a day or a week, Sail 4 Cancer takes cancer patients and their families away from the disease and the nightmare that they are living through and offers them the chance to rebuild relationships, create positive memories and have some quality fun time together.

Liam and Kat take on the Great South Run

Liam and Kat are getting their running shoes on for the 10 mile Great South Run and also raising funds for Sail 4 Cancer to help another family get away from the stress of living with cancer.

Liam feels he is not particularly fit at this time and thinks it will be a big challenge in the few months before October to get into running shape.

They are looking forward to raising funds and awareness for Sail 4 Cancer. Liam and Kat ask supporters to look out for them with the Sail 4 Cancer logo on their t-shirts during the race.
