Rob Davies of Peterston Super Ely, whose grandad was a founder of Cancer Research Wales, is to complete a 70km trek through Iceland later this year for the charity.
Aiming to raise £3,000, Rob has recently completed the Wales Marathon in Tenby where he and 119 other people linked together to set the world record for “most runners linked to complete a marathon.”
Rob’s grandad, Dr Ken Davies, was a founder and long term President of Cancer Research Wales received an OBE for his incredible work with charities and the NHS in Wales.
Rob said: “If I can make just a fraction of a contribution that my extraordinary grandad made, then I will feel immensely proud and that I am helping to continue his and Cancer Research Wales’ amazing work.”
The team at Aspen Waite in Wales are supporting Rob in his venture, using their strong relationship with the Cardiff Blues and links in the Welsh business community to gain momentum and surpass his fundraising.
Darren Talbot of Aspen Waite in Wales said:
“This is a fantastic challenge for a great cause, and on behalf of everyone at Aspen Waite we wish Rob good luck. We hope that our small part in helping to promote Rob’s ambition helps him achieve his goals”.
