Superhero challenge for cancer nurse

Stuart Holroyd has set himself a challenge for 2017. The cancer nurse from Bury, Greater Manchester, is taking on this year's Great Manchester Run to raise vital funds for the hospital ward he works on.

Stuart has been a nurse on Ward 84, the regional centre for the treatment of childhood cancer, at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital for the past eight years.

I’m not a runner by any stretch of the imagination, so this will definitely be a challenge for me, but knowing I’m running for such a good cause will spur me on. My aim is to try and raise as much money as possible for the Ward and to make my patients proud!
