Jonas Gutierrez, the Newcastle United winger, just completed the Buenos Aires Marathon last Sunday, and it was to raise funds for a cancer charity in his native Argentina, and he ran with others in a team to raise money for the cancer charity.

That’s just unbelievable that Jonas – having gone through chemotherapy treatments recently – still had the time to do some running, so he could complete the marathon, and I can say from personal experience they are very difficult and the last 6 miles seem like 20 miles. 😀
Jonas put out a tweet after he completed the Marathon on his Twitter account:
“Thank you very much to all the participants of the Buenos Aires Marathon 42Km for the support and encouragement during the race.”
Jonas was part of a team – shown above – who were running to raise awareness of detecting cancer early, and particularly testicular cancer, which is what Jonas has.
Jonas Gutierrez – he looks in great shape
It’s simply unbelievable that after everything Jonas has been through recently, that he had the courage and willingness to run a marathon – which is not an easy thing to do – for anybody.
It shows you just what a man Jonas is – he’s getting to be a real inspiration.
When is he coming back to Newcastle United, so he can be acknowledged by the fans?
