Mike Canning - Volunteer - Team Macmillan

Mike, Volunteer Macmillan Team


Mike is our brilliant stalwart of the Virgin Money London Marathon and has supported Macmillan at so many of our events over the years. 


My story


Mike has been volunteering at the Virgin Money London Marathon and Macmillan for many years. He’ll be one of the first friendly faces you see when you visit us at the Post Race Reception.  

‘The reason I volunteer with Macmillan is because it’s a cause very dear to my heart, as I lost someone through cancer. Macmillan were there to help at all stages and they were brilliant. So really I’m paying back what they did for me.  

I love being a volunteer at all the sporty events, whether it’s cheering, at a water station or in the Race Village. It’s a brill experience meeting some amazing people who do amazing things and raise a lot of money for the cause.’
