My Story

Thank you for visiting my Fundraising Page, please hear me out. Some of you may or may not know that my mum had cancer a few years ago and because of the life saving work that cancer research has done, she was 40x more likely to survive and beat it (which she did). Because of Covid-19 charities fundraising efforts have been hard hit due to cancelled marathons etc , and I want to do everything i can to help fund them. The money I raise will help fund life-saving research and to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. I hated running and you may (probably not) have realised that I have been doing the couch to 5k program to try and gain a bit of fitness in lockdown. That training was actually was in anticipation of this challenge. In August, i will be running 5k EVERYDAY for 31 days! Rain, shine, snow, tornadoes, hangovers you name it, i will have to do a 5k in a day no matter what. This will be one of the biggest challenges I have ever done, I have done several spartan races/tough mudders which are 1 day things but this is 31 time back to back, It will be difficult to get up and do this every day for 31 days. Day 31 will definitely finish at a pub! I have no goal in mind as these are really tough times and people have lost jobs and finances are tight, but even a pound towards this will help us beat cancer. Thank you and stay safe Blair x
