Joe’s half marathon raises £4k+

Joe ran the Conquer Crystal Palace Half Marathon on 20 March 2022 and has raised over £4,040 for The Give A Duck Foundation in honour of his daughter Emily.


On 15 July 2021, Emily age 5 was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Emily received a Chemo Duck via the Play Team at The Royal Marsden Hospital (Sutton) and her younger sister Lydia received a Huggable Hope duck!

“Chemo Duck always comes with Emily to the hospital. It has been a fantastic play therapy tool to help Emily understand how her port is accessed and what happens at every hospital appointment. It was particularly useful in demonstrating procedures before they were done on Emily. Lydia’s sibling duck Huggable Hope has become a great friend, especially when Emily has overnight stays in hospital.”

Thank you Joe for your incredible support! We love your photos – what a great support team!
