I'm fundraising for Cancer Research UK to beat breast cancer sooner by running 42km (a marathon) over the summer holidays.

My Story

This week we received the news that one of Poppy's wonderful teachers has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Poppy saw an advert on the TV for Cancer Research and we discussed people fundraising to help research towards finding a cure and helping people to get better. Initially we discussed running 10k over 10 days but she didn't want to do that so she said "what about 20km.... but then double that could be 40km!" So we agreed on 40km but over the summer holidays rather than a week! She's now decided on 42km as this would be a marathon 🏃🏼‍♀️ We haven't set a target but would love to have some sponsors so please sponsor if you can :) x Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m raising money for the breast cancer research done by Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose! Donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.


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.
