    Man running barefoot marathon for charity after partner's heartbreaking cancer diagnosis
    By DevonLive


    A man has organised a half marathon this weekend before planning to run a full marathon barefoot for a charity which has helped his family following a cancer diagnosis.

    Ceri Rees from Kingsbridge runs an outdoor adventure company in Devon and on Saturday, November 13, he is organising a half marathon around Exeter and in December he’ll be running a full marathon barefoot, all to raise money for FORCE Cancer Charity.

    FORCE has supported Ceri and his family after partner Emily was diagnosed with cancer just after the birth of their second child last year. She had a double mastectomy in January 2021.

    Ceri is hoping to raise awareness of the work FORCE does to support local people affected by cancer and raise money from Saturday’s Green Lantern run – there’s still time to enter the event, which has Olympic star Jo Pavey as its patron.
