Varsity 5k - Danny Porter Foundation
Add this event to your calendar
Sheffield Hallam University is working alongside The University of Sheffield to support the Danny Porter Foundation.
Dan Porter MBE was an inspirational individual, who championed sport at Hallam University, Sheffield and across the country.
For two decades, Dan was the driving force for the development of sport and physical activity at Sheffield Hallam. He was inspirational to all at Hallam and The University of Sheffield with everything he did, especially to rugby union who have held numerous charity events for the foundation over the past few years.
Sadly, he recently passed away after a strong battle with numerous cancers. After his first diagnosis, Dan set up the Danny Porter Foundation raising over 250k for good causes. In 2016, he was honoured with an MBE for services to Education and Fundraising.
The Foundation provides donations and grants to other charities providing research, support, care and equipment to people suffering from cancer and/or requiring neurological surgery. It also exists to share Danny's experience to help others through their own experience with cancer. The Foundation will help patients whose friends and family are struggling to provide the support they would like due to their personal circumstances.
Please be generous and show your support!
