Race for Life Gloucester 10k 2019

To successfully run 10k and raise lots of money for charity to help people with or effected by cancer.

My Story

My mum had breast cancer in December 2016 and after an operation to remove it and radiotherapy she is back to normal now. She received help during that time from charities setup to help people to deal with the effects of cancer. So I would like to give back to them whilst challenging myself to run 10k (something I never thought I could do).


Breast cancer

With almost 140 women diagnosed every day, breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. And, although rarer, around 350 men are also diagnosed with breast cancer every year. The good news is more than two-thirds of women now survive 20 years or more. Help Cancer Research UK find new ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
