UK: Ian Staddon (pictured) is to run the 26-mile race in aid of charity Alstrom Syndrome UK, reports PSN-e. Best known for his role as Studer VP sales, Staddon recently lost his 16-year-old daughter, Chloe, to the rare genetic condition.

In what will be his second London Marathon, Staddon is aiming to raise money for Alstrom Syndrome UK.

"Childhood blindness, hearing loss, heart failure, kidney failure, diabetes type two, obesity and many other health problems are caused by this horrible disease," said Staddon. "Providing support and advice to those who have to live with this illness, Alstrom Syndrome UK (ASUK) is a small family-run charity which has been fantastically helpful to my own family and our wonderful daughter Chloe.

"Chloe lost her battle to Alstrom Syndrome last year, quite suddenly and unexpectedly, just after her 16th birthday. She has inspired me to run this marathon to raise money for ASUK and to build up a fund to enable children with this condition to do things that they could not otherwise afford to do. I want them to be able to live out their dreams now, whilst they still can!"

The industry is urged to contribute generously to Ian's marathon attempt via his dedicated Just Giving page (link below). For more information on ASUK, please click on the second link.

The 2010 London Marathon will take place on April 25.
