2 Marathons in 2 Countries

Community

TPC’s Consultant, Adam Hobbs, decided to run two marathons in two weeks (Paris then London) in April 2018 in memory of his grandad, to raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre.

Speaking on his decision to run the two marathons, Adam said, “Sadly my grandad lost his fight with Prostate Cancer earlier last year having been diagnosed just 3 years previously.

He continued by saying, “I ran a marathon in Prague last year and wanted to top that. With the Paris and London marathon only a couple of weeks apart, it became the ideal challenge. It was a tense build up to each event, especially with the weather reports suggesting both were going to be particularly hot days.”

Adam completed the Paris Marathon in 4 hours 10 minutes and the London Marathon in 4 hours 9 minutes. Speaking about the experience he said “The heat certainly made it difficult but I’m delighted to have made it round both without suffering any injuries! More importantly, to have raised £3106 in the process really makes it worthwhile and to top it off my target was reached during the second marathon! I can’t thank everybody that supported me enough.”

Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men. Over 11,000 men die every year in the UK and the number increases every year.

PCRC are doing some amazing work around this and the mission is to develop new therapy for men with advanced prostate cancer. The immediate goal is to increase survival and their vision is a cure for the disease.

PCRC is the only charity solely focused on funding world class scientists developing new treatments for advanced prostate cancer.

The Mighty Marathon

Community

TPC’s very first employee Tim Shaw decided to take on a physical and mental challenge beyond most mortals. In April 2016 he completed one of the toughest races on the planet. Just to give you an idea of what he did:

The race was 257km long, that’s 160miles! Nearly one quarter of the people who started the race dropped out before the finish.

It was run in the Sahara Desert over seven days in temperatures of 40C. Each runner had to carry the provisions they needed for the whole race on their back. Only water was provided. Besides running across the desert the runners had to contend with sandstorms and sleep deprivation due to tents collapsing in the sand storms. They also had to watch out for deadly critters such as Camel Spiders.

Tim’s feet were shredded by the end of the race but he made it right through to the Finish Line like an absolute trooper.

It really doesn’t come any tougher!

Tim raised an incredible total of £1800 for charity doing this.

On Sunday 27th September 2015 Alex, one of our consultants, took part in one of the craziest runs we have ever seen! The Spartan Race is 23km long with 30+ obstacles to tackle. The race is for the most adventurous adrenaline-junkies who thrive on excitement. Alex had to tackle barbed wire, fire, rivers, lakes and mud – lots of mud! We think he’s incredibly tough, especially given that he finished in the top 20% of 2800 entrants with a speedy time of 3.5 hours.

Alex raised £700 for the Soi Dog Foundation, a charity working to improve the lives of Street Dogs in Thailand.

On 28th January 2015 Keith and Shoshanna hosted a briefing in the Jubilee Room in Parliament on the illegal dog meat trade in South East Asia. It gained cross party support and was attended by celebrities such as Dame Judi Dench and Peter Egan who came to show their support and speak out against the trade.

Keith and Shoshanna began organizing the event in the Summer of 2014 in order to raise awareness and encourage the UK government to help tackle the trade in which 30m – 50million dogs are tortured and brutally killed each year. The several months of hard work and dedication paid off as the briefing was a resounding success.

Keith and Shoshanna continue to work closely with the Asia Canine Protection Alliance and UK Government on this matter.

Co-Founder and Managing Principal Keith Taylor has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He has also won a European Silver Medal and a British Open Silver Medal. He held a two hour Jiu Jitsu class for TPC staff in order to raise money for charity. TPC staff learnt how to do an arm bar, a triangle choke, a kimura, an arm triangle choke and a wrist lock. Let’s just hope we don’t ever have to use it in real life!

TPC raised £350 for the Soi Dog Foundation, a charity working to improve the lives of Street Dogs in Thailand.

The Little Princess Trust

Community

The Little Princess Trust is an incredible charity providing real hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have sadly lost their own hair through cancer treatment. TPC's Consultant Hanel Gir very admirably had her long locks chopped off for this charity which we think is simply amazing.

The Skydive

Community

Head of Operations Shoshanna Mitchell is terrified of heights and so it makes complete sense that she decided to do a charity skydive! On a chilly day in February 2015 Shoshanna was thrown out of a plane in Cambridgeshire at 12,000ft in order to raise money for a charity close to her heart.
