New Brains CEO to run the Cardiff Half and reach 150k goal for Tenovus Cancer Care!

Our team here at Brains and Coffee #1 have raised close to £150,000 throughout our partnership with Tenovus Cancer Care over the last three years, which is tantiliainsly close to reaching our target.

Being Official Sponsors of the Cardiff Half Marathon again this year, we thought this could be an amazing way to raise the last few pounds for Tenovus Cancer Care!

Our new CEO Alistair Darby said, “Being folk that like to plan ahead, last autumn my wife Alex and I set about considering in what way we would like to celebrate her reaching five years all clear of breast cancer in November 2018. We decided to push ourselves to do something really significant and ended up signing up to run the New York Marathon on Sunday 4th November. 10 months on, with our training going well, we realised that we wanted to run in an official event before getting to New York in order to get a taste of the real thing.”

Alistair has set up a JustGiving page to help us reach our amazing target of £150,000. Donations of any kind are welcome whilst they get on and do the hard bit along the streets of Cardiff on Sunday 7th October!
