Sam "Dobbo" Dobson is one of our coaches at Get Running who has just been diagnosed with a brain tumour. He is having surgery on Wednesday 9th October and has a long road of recovery ahead of him.

Dobbo’s passion and his supportive nature has helped and encouraged so many of us on our running journey - whether that's running our first event or our twenty-first, improving our time or just starting out running. Now it's our turn to cheer Dobbo on - if we all chip in what we can, we can relieve some financial pressure while he’s off work and enable him to focus on what he needs to do for himself to battle through his marathon and get to the finish line in good shape.

Let’s do it for Dobbo!
