Kilburn man to run half marathon in honour of his late mother
Businessman aims to raise �1,000 for cancer charity
A Kilburn businessman will be putting his best foot forward in honour of his late mother.
Ian Kaye, of Exeter Road, will be taking part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon to raise money for the Lymphoma Association.
The 39-year-old’s mother sadly died from Lymphoma in 1992.
Mr Kaye, who founded the website www.networkbanker.co.uk, hopes to raise �1,000 for the cancer charity.
He said: “I wanted to raise money for the Lymphoma Association as they provide invaluable information and support to anyone affected by lymphoma, whether a patient, family member, carer or friend.
“My mum died when I was 20 and I know how necessary those support networks can be.”
