Andy's epic challenge for Children with Leukaemia.
Happy alumnus runs Britain for charity
Andy Jackson, a History and Politics graduate who was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2003, is celebrating his survival eight years later by running from John O'Groats to Land's End - dressed as Mr Happy!
Andy received a life-saving bone marrow transplant and intensive leukaemia treatment and now wants to raise money to give children the same chance he had. He is running an average of 22 miles a day to raise significant funds for the charity, Children with Leukaemia.
Andy said, ‘I haven’t got a fundraising target in mind but would love to raise £250,000 - the amount that it cost to have my bone marrow transplant and all the follow up treatments.’
