Welcome to the fundraising page for Anton Lane, MD of Edge Tax, who is taking on the incredible challenge of running the London Marathon to raise funds for a cause that holds a special place in his heart. In memory of his dear friend Paul Emsley, who dedicated his life to helping others with their health, Anton aims to raise £26.2k for Brain Tumour Research. Let’s join hands and support Anton in his mission to make a difference in the fight against brain tumours.

About Paul Emsley:

Paul Emsley was not just a fitness instructor; he was a beacon of hope for many battling leukaemia. Leaving behind a lucrative banking career, he chose to embrace a life of service by raising his fitness to donate bone marrow for leukaemia patients through Anthony Nolan. His legacy continued with the establishment of the award-winning ‘Energise – cancer rehabilitation exercise’ program in Bristol. Sadly, on 12 March 2018, Paul passed away due to a brain tumour. Anton Lane is running the London Marathon in honor of his extraordinary friend and to carry forward the impact Paul made in the lives of many.

Our Mission:

The aim of this fundraising campaign is to support Brain Tumour Research, an organization that strives to find a cure for brain tumours, improve patient outcomes, and enhance the quality of life for those affected by this devastating disease.
