About the event

Welcome to the Miles for Smiles Challenge! Paul Marks, a wonderful volunteer in the UK, will be running each week in Central London to prepare for the Wimbledon Half Marathon on Oct. 29th. 

We want to challenge you to join him - from wherever you are in the world!

Not a seasoned runner? No worries! Go for a walk in the park, a bike ride around your neighborhood, or hit the gym! Physical activity has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health. It can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, making it an essential tool in the journey of grief.

If you're in London and would like to join Paul on his weekly runs, click here to stay updated on where to meet up with him.

This week, we're running for Emma Bishop, a mother and cancer patient who lives in the UK. In April 2022, she was diagnosed with incurable stage 4 EGFR Mutant non- small Lung Cancer. She is the true definition of a fighter, running the London Marathon in April of this year.

On her journey, Emma says:

"If I do lose the fight, it means the world to me to know that I have made a difference to what this diagnosis can mean for so many other people in the future. I would like to think that having cancer hasn't been in vain and my husband and children will always remember what I have achieved."

Emma's story inspires us to make sure that stories like hers are remembered.
