Phil Corbett - We will hold you in the light



We are so lucky to have so many wonderful supporters out there. People come to us offering their time, their expertise and their money, knowing that we make every penny count towards saving lives.

 There are some days when those stories are so full of hope and positivity for a future free of oesophageal cancer that we are doubly galvanised in our efforts, knowing that this is a fight worth having for families and friends, loved ones and colleagues. But there are some days that take the wind out of our sails and remind us that many more lives are lost to oesophageal cancer than are saved. Young lives.

 Many of you will have been following the superhuman efforts of Owain Thomas whose multiple ultra-marathon conquests have been raising awareness and money since 2015.


We are very sorry to have to tell you all that Phil Corbett, beloved friend and inspiration for Owain’s heroic achievements has lost his brave fight with oesophageal cancer at 34 years of age.

Our thoughts are with Phil’s family and with you, Owain.
May he live on forever in memory and endeavour.

Please read about Owain and his epic conquests www.ultrarunningmatelot.co.uk

In memory of Phil Corbett 26th November 1981 - 21st March 2016.

We will hold you in the light.
