Swansea surgeons hit the road to help charity
A TRIO of Swansea surgeons will be going to extraordinary lengths to help bowel cancer patients — 13 miles each in fact.
The three colorectal surgeons from Singleton Hospital will be swapping their scrubs for shorts and vests when they run the Cardiff Half Marathon.
They are supporting Swansea- based Golau Cancer Foundation.
Consultant Dean Harris, specialist registrar Rhodri Codd and fellow Jeremy Williamson have their sights set on raising £1,000 to help towards colorectal cancer research in Swansea.

Dean said: "Colorectal cancer, also known as bowel cancer, is the third commonest cancer in the UK, affecting 1 in 15 people.
"Research is helping to improve the survival rate for bowel cancer year on year through earlier diagnosis and improvements in treatment."
Golau Cancer raises money for, and awareness of, the South Wales Cancer Centre at Singleton Hospital.
Patients from Bridgend to Aberystwyth are treated at the Swansea centre, as well as on wards in hospitals across the region.
The Cardiff Half Marathon takes place on Sunday, October 14, and Dean, Rhodri and Jeremy are halfway towards their £1,000 target.
They have set up a website page where people can sponsor them.
Dean added: "All three of us are very proud to be associated with the Golau Cancer Foundation, which supports cancer care for local patients.
"We are excited about the race. We are hoping to achieve personal best times on the day."
