Raising money in memory of Talan Penny

Talan died in May 2017 from Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), a type of soft tissue sarcoma that grows in active muscles of the body. Talan was 19. We miss him greatly. Through Talan’s Trust we wish to raise awareness of RMS and other childhood cancers and raise money for research into the disease Talan had.

Funding research into RMS

Since Talan died we have raised £120,000, helping fund scientists researching RMS at the Institute of Cancer Research

Raising Awareness

We want to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of childhood cancers, which we hope will lead to earlier diagnosis.

Helping families

Over the coming years we wish to fund services to support the siblings of children and teenagers affected by cancer.

Remembering Talan

At the heart of what we do is Talan. He was our son, our brother and our friend and we wish to remember him always.

Another amazing #TAL19

Thank you to everyone who joined us, whether as a runner or as a volunteer, on Sunday 20 November 2022 . This was the 6th #TAL19 and we loved every minute of race day. The weather was challenging but the energy of the day was so infectious and we smiled from the moment we got out of bed. It would have been Talan’s 25th birthday in November, and we know he would be so proud of everything you do in his name.
