Response from Lady Elsie Robson

Shortly after I announced on that I would be raising funds for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, Lady Elsie Robson had the following kind words to say "We’re very pleased Mark has chosen to raise funds in aid of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation with his run across Australia. 

Mark’s raised a huge amount of money for charity over the years and has already supported our Foundation. He was kind enough to give a motivational speech to our Great North Runners last year and is helping Robbie Elliott with his Bike For Bobby challenge. 

He’s set himself a very great challenge with this run but we have every faith in his abilities and know how committed he is. Unfortunately he’s someone who knows the pain of losing loved ones to cancer and we know how determined he is to succeed. 

We look forward to getting more involved and finding out more about Australia as the months go on.
