This year’s Brentwood Half Marathon is to be the final fun run for the charity Georgia’s Teenage Cancer Appeal (GTCA).

The news comes after bosses of the charity confirmed that the organisation would be wound up in January 2019.

GTCA has taken part in the race since its inception in January 2009.

The charity formed as a show of support for Georgia Cordery, it was in June 2008, as she turned 13, Georgia was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer that would subsequently claim her young life in May 2010.

GTCA’s goal is to improve the lives of children and young adults in Essex, Georgia’s home, who are suffering from cancer and other life threatening and life limiting conditions.
