Kelvin, my step father, is the biggest inspiration in my life. He has completed 14 marathons through the years and at 40 years old achieved his personal best of 2 hours and 36 minutes at the London Marathon. He has been involved with Cwmbran Rugby Club as a player, supporter, running the line and is now a life member due to his passion and commitment to the club. He has been a constant pillar of the club through rain or shine and is respected by all who know him. Kelvin's biggest challenge in recent times has been his health. A heart attack and a knee replacement were followed by cancer of the bladder. I have never seen one person deal with these serious illnesses with more dignity and courage than Kel. He has endured draining treatment and major surgery in the past year, only to come out the other side looking fitter and healthier than ever before! He still continues to participate in the same activities that he did before the illness, including riding his pushbike! His fitness puts people half his age to shame! Kelvin also recently completed a 10km trek across the Welsh coastline in aid of the Japan Tsunami Relief Fund, a cause close to our heart as my sister lives in Tokyo. In short, 150 words are too little to describe the achievements of this man. Kelvin embodies everything that the Olympic Games are about. He is an inspiration to me and all who meet and know him and thoroughly deserving of this chance to hold the prestigious torch, on its journey around the UK.
