Wapping Hockey Club’s Dan Carter will be swapping his hockey trainers for his running trainers as he tackles the London Marathon on April 26.
The 36-year-old is running the 26.2 mile course for Prostate Cancer UK as part of their Men United movement and the money raised will help fund research into causes and treatment as well as provide support and information to those affected by the disease.
Carter was inspired to run the marathon to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his father losing a four-year battle with various cancers.
“I decided to run for Prostate Cancer UK because I want to help create a world where no father, son, brother, uncle, or friend falls victim to this disease,” said Carter.
“I am looking forward to it, and I’m delighted to be raising awareness and much needed money to help the fight against prostate cancer.”
He will be back in action less than a month later when he runs the Copenhagen marathon on May 24.
