More than 5,000 people are expected to walk 14-miles from Chelsea to Sutton this month in aid of the Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital.

The start of the event, on March 16, will be marked by speeches from cancer specialists Dr Nick van As, Dr James Larkin and Professor Martin Gore, the medical director of the hospital.

Celebrity supporters including actors Nathaniel Parker and Larry Lamb and pop stars Richard and Fred Fairbrass will also be taking part in the event.

Starting at the Royal Marsden hospital in Chelsea, the 14 mile route moves through Putney and Wimbledon before finishing at Royal Marsden hospital in Belmont, with some walking a shorter route from Raynes Park.

I'm typing this as I sit next to my 2year old daughter fighting cancer at the Marsden. I know 1st hand what a wonderful job all the doctors, nurses and staff do here, not only for my daughter but to everyone that has to attend a hospital like this. Wishing everyone the best of luck with the walk next weekend.
