The idea came to him when his wife, Edith, was diagnosed with Colon Cancer – who is now thankfully cured. After experiencing the harsh realities of cancer, he wanted to find a way to help families going through the same experience as his own family had been through.

 

 

Since running is his passion, he wanted to put his best strength to good use but there was never a good time or support for it. However, last year’s lockdown served as motivation to start working towards this goal, training for 180-200km per week with no rest days in preparation for the challenge.

Drew has been running for the past 40 years and is currently running 42 km every day at Ta Qali Picnic Area in a 900M loop. Knowing that many families will benefit from the donations collected is what pushes Drew and keeps him motivated to continue training and accomplish his dream.

 

 

This way, many patients with different diagnoses who travel to undergo treatment in the hospitals of London will be able to benefit from the New Project of Puttinu Cares. No matter how long they stay in the UK, Puttinu offers free accommodation for the whole family.
