Background

In May 2017, Thornberry was diagnosed with liver cancer and was told in June it was terminal. After visiting with others with liver cancer at London's King College Hospital (KCH), Thornberry realized the lack of funds for research of the particular cancer and the need for action. In order to raise money for KCH, Thornberry decided to run 145 miles in three days starting on September 2.[3]
