Team Plevin Takes On The Great Manchester Run!

20 March 2019

For the fourth time, our intrepid team of runners will take on the Great Manchester Run in hopes of bettering their times from previous years.

Every year, we nominate a charitable cause for all of our donations raised. This year it's all in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further. Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.

Our team will be limbering up on the afternoon of the 19th May 2019.

We would be greatful if you could spare a few pounds to help make cancer a thing of the past, by visiting our donation page here:

For those of you who want to follow the race, footage will begin at 12:00 on BBC Two, Sunday 19th May 2019.

From all of us at Plevin, thank you for your generosity, and we'll see you (hopefully) at the finish line!

Ian Runs to Beat Pancreatic Cancer

30 July 2018

Our very own Ian Blewitt will be running the Dublin Half Marathon on Sunday 12th August 2018. Ian's run will take him across 13.1 miles of the Irish capital, and he hopes to run it in under 2 hours! Ian has previously run in 4 half marathons, so is practically a professional at this point!

As this endeavour is all for a good cause, Ian would greatly appreciate your help in sponsoring to help the fantastic team at the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.

Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund is the national charity dedicated exclusively to supporting research to improve diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund has three main objectives:

  1. To raise funds for research into early detection, new treatments and ultimately a cure for pancreatic cancer
  2. To encourage more of the research community to get involved in pancreatic cancer research
  3. To promote the need for more research funding by the major cancer research funding organisations

To date, Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund has supported 52 research projects with grants totalling £8.1 million - all through fundraising and donations.

To play your part and help Ian raise money for this fantastic charity, please visit Ian's Just Giving Page

Thank you for reading and an even bigger thank you if you are able to donate!
