Youngster Aiming To Run In The London Marathon To Raise Money For The Teenage Cancer Trust
Mohammed Bhana, Huddersfield Town Football Ambassador
A big-hearted Yorkshire based youngster hopes to raise £2,000 for charity by running in one of the world’s biggest races.
Danny Hoyle, son of Huddersfield Town owners, Dean and Janet Hoyle, will be taking on the gruelling 26.2miles of the London marathon in April this year - in a bid to raise cash for a charity close to his heart – the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Hoyle intends to help ensure young people with cancer have the best treatment, care and support – and ultimately ensure that the money raised – is used to benefit young people so that they do not face cancer alone.

To add to the challenge of running a marathon, Hoyle recently recovered from a Grade 2 MCL tear which left him unable to run for 16 weeks.
According to The Teenage Cancer Trust, around seven people aged 13 to 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.
The charity runs specialist units dedicated to young people with cancer, delivering world-class cancer care and support to young people, working in partnership with the NHS to provide highly-trained expert staff and specialist cancer units in NHS hospitals across the UK.
The charity is there for patients at every stage from diagnosis, through treatment and after treatment. It also brings young people with cancer together so they can support each other.
Philanthropy runs in the Hoyle family, it seems. Town chairman Dean and his wife Janet, plan to take part in a philanthropic initiative, where they will sleep outdoors along with hundreds of other business figures, with the sole aim of raising awareness of homelessness.
Danny’s younger brother, Josh took part in a mass head shave along with his team mates at Battyeford Sporting Club, raising £8,035.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support and Kirkwood Hospice.
The London Marathon takes place on April 22.
