Reshna Radiven, Head of Communications and Engagement at DKMS took part, raising over £3,200. Reshna, who joined DKMS in January 2020, has worked with many patients: "Having seen first-hand the impact that DKMS has on the lives of patients and their loved ones, I want to do everything I can to make sure more people in need of a stem cell transplant find their perfect match."
Georgina Mills was due to run a few years ago but it was delayed due to Covid and injury; she was able to run this year, raising over £1,100.
Iain Robertson raised over £550. He explained: "My auntie passed away from leukaemia and my nephew is currently very ill waiting for a bone marrow transplant so I thought this would be a great cause to run for. It's close to my family and my heart."
Steve Baker signed up to DKMS as a donor along with his wife a couple of years ago after hearing about it on the radio.
