Wolverhampton based Sergeant Martin Danher is competing in the London Marathon in aid of CLIC Sargent, the children’s cancer charity.
He only took up long distance running in the last few years and so far has only completed half marathons.
But he has been inspired to complete a full marathon for the charity after losing an 11-year-old relative to a brain tumour.
Based in Wolverhampton throughout his 16 years’ service, Martin has already raised more than £2,300 ahead of the marathon in April.
Martin (37) explained: “It’s a challenge I have wanted to do for a while and the fact I am raising money for charity at the same time gives me extra motivation.
“It will be my first full marathon, so a little daunting, but my colleagues and the wider community in Wolverhampton have been very supportive and generous with their donations.
“CLIC Sargent do such wonderful work to give specialist support to young cancer sufferers and their families.
“They do all they can to give everyone the best chance in life and it will inspire me to fight through any fatigue near the end.”
