Andy Remic — who writes some of the most fun, most exciting science fiction/adventure around — is going to be doing a run to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Won’t you consider sponsoring him…and passing this information along to others? Below is the press release with details. — JET
SF/Fantasy author Andy Remic is doing a sponsored run called “T for 3″ on Sunday 7th July 2013 in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust. All he’s asking for is £3 – (that’s THREE ENGLISH QUIDS!) from generous members of the public. That’s less than a pint of beer. Less than a glass of wine! Less than a Subway meatball sandwich! So go on, please email Andy at– jappoc [at] hotmail.co.uk with the subject line “Teenage Cancer Trust”. All monies can be collected via Paypal via the same address. It’s for a very worthy cause.
The top 3 highest sponsor donations will receive a bumper pack of Remic books, digital Anarchy Book titles, and a preview pre-publication copy of Remic’s next novel – THE IRON WOLVES published January 2014 by Angry Robot Books. Just as an incentive.
Finally, ALL BOOK PURCHASES made through Remic’s publishing company Anarchy Books on 7th July 2013 will also be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust. This includes works by Jeffrey Thomas, Eric Brown and James Lovegrove, to name but a few. Check out – www.anarchy-books.com

ABOUT TEENAGE CANCER TRUST
Our vision is a future where young people’s lives don’t stop because they have cancer. We make sure they’re treated as young people first, cancer patients second and everything we do aims to improve their quality of life and chances of survival.
Around six young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ We’re the only charity dedicated to making this happen.
We bring young people together so they can be treated together, by teenage cancer experts, in the best place for them.
We educate young people about cancer and work with health professionals to develop their knowledge so we can improve the speed and quality of diagnosis.
And by funding research and working with our partners in the NHS, government and organisations both nationally and internationally, we strive to improve survival rates.
We lead the world in the care of young people with cancer. Together with these young people, their families and the passion of our supporters, we’re challenging the NHS and transforming lives.
