A dad is running 35 miles across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire to help beat the rare cancer his son's been battling.

Ben Sharp is setting out from home from the Children's Hospital at the John Radcliffe in Oxford.

He'll pass through Thame, Princes Risborough and Great Missenden before finishing at his home in Little Chalfont.

Ben's already raised nearly eight thousand pounds for research into neuroblastoma after his four year old son, Alex was diagnosed in 2010.

It's a weekend of celebration all-round because Alex has finally come home.

To support Ben's cause and donate to The Neuroblastoma Society you can visit the following link:
