Brian's 12-strong team of staff from the college and students aged 16-19 volunteer their massage therapy skills to ease away the aches and pains of our 200 #TeamTeenageCancer runners at the Virgin Money London Marathon!
"I'm blown away by the inspirational Teenage Cancer Trust runners and volunteers that we meet at the marathon - you meet the most wonderful people!" he said. "What better way to get our students involved in volunteering than getting them to support other young people?"
It's just so inspiring to be there to cheer all the runners on and support them with a massage at the end. I want to help in any way I can, and I hope by getting involved in volunteering and fundraising as much as I can this will encourage others to get involved in supporting Teenage Cancer Trust
As well as also volunteering at this year's Royal Albert Hall shows, Brian also supported us by being our compère at Skydive for Stephen last year – and was even persuaded to make the jump himself on the day!
Inspired by the Teenage Cancer Trust challengers he's met over the years, Brian has also taken on the task of cycling 50 miles to raise money for us. Joined by a group of AFC Fylde football fans, the group will cycle from their ground to Stockport County, on Easter Monday 28 March.
We can't thank Brian enough for all of the volunteering and fundraising he has done for us! If you want to be a legend like Brian and join us at the world-famous London Marathon or a challenge event happening in your area then join our volunteer team and cheering squads...
