My Story

Kim : "Thank you so much for visiting our Just Giving page. On Sunday 11th June I will be participating in my 1st Race for Life and I am very proud to be doing this with my Daughter Anna. We will be running, jogging - or probably walking the 5 kilometres together. It is a sad fact that so many of us are aware of someone who is suffering from Cancer – but it affects all of us in some way. The reason we have decided to do this Race is to honour those we have loved and lost to Cancer – they will never be forgotten; to help those that have been touched by Cancer and are battling against this terrible disease today – you are always in our thoughts; and to thank Cancer Research for educating and helping us. Anna and I are doing this to raise awareness of this disease and to try and make as much money as possible to help towards funding research to find ways to prevent, diagnose and treat Cancer – our wish is that those who face Cancer will be supported in every way and that one day it will be eliminated for good! We hope you will sponsor us to help make this happen. Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity - It is really appreciated." Anna: "Hearing that someone in your life has been told they have cancer is something that is so hard to talk about and is life changing. I have lost many friends and family to this disease. Seeing them bravely battle something that was unexpected and watching the affect on loved ones they leave behind, has made me realise just how precious our lives are. Today, people I care most about, courageously fight against an unexpected situation, their courage, positivity, stubbornness to push on with a smile still on their face is truly inspiring. I want to raise money for awareness but also to say thank you for all the help and support Cancer Research has done for me, for my Mum, for Michelle, for Ben, for Wendy, for Nicola and for all my close friends and their families." Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives. 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure.
