Jeremy Horton raises £1,500 for Mesothelioma UK in his first marathon
Jeremy Horton, Partner and Head of Brachers’ Personal Injury and Industrial Disease team has raised just over £1,500 for Mesothelioma UK running the Brighton marathon on 14 April.
This was his first marathon which he completed in an impressive 4 hrs 28 mins, 51 seconds.
Mesothelioma UK is a charity dedicated to providing specialist information, support and education, and to providing care and treatment for all UK patients and carers affected by the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma.
“I’ve acted for many victims of this awful disease who picked up this terrible disease from just doing their everyday jobs; like building houses and ships, lagging heating pipes and laying cables. Mesothelioma UK are the number one charity working to help our clients of this fatal cancer and trying to find better treatment and, hopefully, one day a cure. In 2018 I’d run the Brighton half marathon for Mesothelioma UK. It was really good to be able to do my first full marathon for them and raise even more money for their great cause.”
