Beatson fundraiser Ross Graham embarks on six challenges in six months

15th Apr 2014

Anyone can fundraise for charity and fundraisers who join the Beatson Cancer Charity will be integral to helping us beat cancer. However, sometimes someone comes along who goes the extra mile with their fundraising efforts.Ross Graham, 28, from Airdrie has decided to fundraise for the Beatson Cancer Charity and we couldn't be more grateful to have his support. The physical education teacher based in Perthshire will be undertaking six fundraising challenges in six months for the Beatson. These include taking part in the Mighty Deerstalker which involves a 10K off-road run at night in darkness through mud filled trenches, swimming with sharks at Deep Sea World, bungee jumping through the air at 40 metres, a gruelling Tough Mudder obstacle course, climbing up to the summit of Ben Nevis and a 10,000 feet sky dive.Ross is fundraising for the Beatson Cancer Charity as he knows more and more people are being affected by cancer more than ever, and he is passionate about helping the fantastic service the Beatson provides its patients. Ross said:“I’ve heard nothing but praise for all the staff and the care they provide for patients and also their loved ones. I know Scotland has the worst record for cancer sufferers in Europe and one day I’ll have to deal with cancer affecting someone I love and I don’t want to wait till it’s too late to make a difference.”Ross will truly be pioneering the Team Beatson fundraising spirit and we wish him all the best over the next six months. We will continue to keep you updated on Ross's fantastic efforts for the Beatson Cancer Charity.
