National Express West Midlands bus driver, Kevin Maxim, has helped to give local charity ‘Balls to Cancer’ a massive boost by raising an impressive £1,450.
With an initial target of £500, 48 year old Kevin took part in the Wolf Run, a hard core 10k course across natural terrain, including open ground, woodland, lakes and thick mud.
Originally from Burton-on-Trent, he moved to Birmingham almost seven years ago and took part in the event to raise funds for ‘Balls to Cancer’ as he feels the work that the charity does to educate people on male cancer awareness is important.
The National Express Employee Charity Panel read Kevin’s application and donated £200 towards his cause, helping Kevin smash his £500 target and almost treble the total amount raised.
Kevin said: “The Charity Panel’s kind donation of £200 has enabled me to achieve way above my original target and I’m so thankful for this. Working in a predominantly male orientated environment it is vital to highlight this type of cancer awareness. My colleagues have been extremely supportive towards the cause and I’d like to say, in the words of Balls to Cancer: If in doubt, get checked out!”
