London, UK (PRWEB) April 19, 2006
Willard Ford, an International Elvis Presley Tribute Artist from London, UK, will once again be running the London Marathon on 23rd April to raise money for The Bobby Moore Fund For Cancer Research UK.
"This will be my 3rd London Marathon and each year the training seems to get tougher. Getting out the door to run 15 miles on a cold, wet, winter's morning doesn't get any easier! I usually do the long training runs on Sunday morning and after a late night doing a show the previous night, running Is often the last thing I feel like doing." commented Ford.
Ford, being an Elvis tribute artist, couldn't resist the lure of the King to help attract more sponsorship for Cancer Research UK his designated charity chosen as his mother is having ongoing treatment for cancer.
"My mother has been having treatment for Cancer for some time now and I want to raise as much money as I can to help find a cure, I will be wearing a replica of "The Chain Suit", a suit Elvis wore In Vegas In 1970. It is a white jumpsuit, with 4 silver chains across the chest. Thankfully It Is a lot lighter than the heavily jeweled suits from his later years!"
