College employee raises money for Benji Ashcroft 1st April 2016

Kidderminster College employee, Kerry McNaney, ran a half marathon at the weekend, raising money for young cancer sufferer Benji Ashcroft, to enable him and his family to travel abroad to undergo treatment for his condition.

Benji has been diagnosed with a rare form of muscular cancer and requires specialist proton treatment in America as the NHS will only fund part of the cost for his family.

Kerry said “I would like to thank everyone who has donated to Benji’s fund. I have been truly overwhelmed by all of your generosity and support for this little boy. Currently, donations stand at £16,879.31! This includes various fund raising events that the community has put on since we discovered Benji needed this treatment last year.”

“There was just over 40 of us running on Sunday and all of us crossed the finish line. It was incredibly emotional, and very tough going! I finished in a time of 2 hours, 46 minutes and 9 seconds!”

Benji flew to Oklahoma with his family on Valentine’s Day and is currently undergoing Proton therapy and chemotherapy at the same time. If you would like to follow his progress, see Benji’s Facebook page…Unofficial:Benji and his Story

Well done to Kerry, and good luck to Benji from everyone at Kidderminster College.
