"We decided to run the Edinburgh 10K as many of us have family or friends affected by cancer. We wanted to raise as much as we could to help support the cancer unit at the Western General Hospital, where many of our friends and family have been treated and cared for. The staff are so supportive and friendly and we wanted to give something back." - DJ Alexander #HealthcareHeroes
