Brain tumour research funds raised by nurse

3rd May 2011

A Nottingham nurse has raised £1,700 for brain tumour research by running in the London marathon.

Neuro-oncology nurse Rebecca Ellis, 34, was inspired by her patients to take up the challenge and completed the 26 mile course in four hours and 21 minutes for the charity Brain Tumour UK. This was the first time she had run the London marathon and covered some 500 miles during her training runs and is now planning to continue her fund-raising activities for the charity.
