In memory of

Stuart Charles Tranter (Dad)

01 Mar 1955 - 15 Feb 2018

Olivia and I are taking part in the Race for Life 5k to raise vital money for cancer research.I'm not a runner so will walk as fast as my arthritic legs will carry me, i'm sure Olivia will race round with the best of them, but as my mum always says its the taking part that counts!!
Why am i doing this? well as many of you know my wonderful Dad fought and beat cancer last year, however we've had the devastating news that he has cancer again, and will need to battle this evil disease all over again. Whilst there is little I can do to help in his fight other than to support him and my mum (who is being wonderfully brave as always), we can get out there and help fundraise. I'm therefore asking each and every one of my friends to donate as much or as little as you can. Many of us grab a coffee on the way to work or whilst out shopping, could you spare that £2.50 and donate it to Olivia and I?

Thank you in advance for any donations received

Olivia and I completed our race for life yesterday (01/07/2018) it was a very emotional day for us both, in 30 degrees of heat at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.
It was also a very humbling experience being surrounded by 2000 women all affected by cancer in some way. Some were running for themselves as a survivor, some were still battling, and others like us were taking part in memory of a loved one.
Olivia was a superstar and ran her first 5k in 35 minutes. I'm so very proud of her. I completed it in 55 minutes which given my own medical condition I was very proud of.
There is still plenty of time to sponsor us, every penny goes towards helping save another persons loved one from this awful disease.

Who knows what 2019 will bring maybe with a bit of training I may try for 10K so watch this space!
