Help for Heroes
Thank you for visiting the Princess Cruises Running on Water fundraising page.
On Thursday September 22 Steven Eaton will be running a marathon on board Grand Princess. Steve will have to run around the deck 70 times in order for him to complete the full marathon (26.41 miles).
Steve Eaton from Tamworth has run 33 marathons in the past but this will be his first at sea. Steve, 57, is a friend of the theparent of Staff Sergeant Christopher Chackfield, who was murdered in June 2010 in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Staff Sergeant Chris, 31, had come through tours in Iraq, Kosovo and Bosnia unscathed but was hit in a June 2010 in and unprovoked attached as he waited with his wife, who has just returned herslef from duty in Afganistan, for a taxi outside a bar in the centre of Newcastle, and died as a result of his wounds, leaving behind his wife and young daughter.
Chris had expressed a wish in his lifetime to raise funds for Help for Heroes, but due to his life being cut short was unable to do this. Mr Eaton would now like to do this run on his behalf and raise funds for Help for Heroes.

About Help for Heroes
Help for Heroes offers comprehensive support to those who have suffered life-changing injuries and illnesses whilst serving our country. This is provided through grants to individuals, other Service charities, capital build projects and our four Recovery Centres across the UK, in Catterick, Colchester, Tidworth and Plymouth. These will offer support for life. The money raised by the hugely generous public has been used to support our wounded, but there is still so much more to do. Soldiers, sailors and airmen who are injured today will still need our support tomorrow and in the days that follow, for the rest of their lives. They are still battling and we won't let them battle alone.
