Ralph Humphries, managing director of housewares supplier Pendeford Housewares, is entering the Shifnal Half Marathon.
The race, which takes place in Shropshire on Sunday June 26 is in aid of Bloodwise (the new name for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research).
This is a UK-based charity dedicated to funding research into all blood cancers including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma, as well as to offering information and support to blood cancer patients.
Ralph said: “I’ve never done a Half Marathon before but when I saw the run and who they were raising the money for couldn’t resist.”
He is inviting the housewares industry to support him in his mission. Donations can be made via his Just Giving Page at http://www.justgiving.com/RALPHWHUMPHRIES
