On 21st July, I will be taking on the Cancer Research Race for Life 10K. Myself and my flatmate from student days of yonder, Alex Brinkman, will be jogging through the Roman remains of St Albans to raise money for this amazing charity.
Friends, romans, countrymen - I am not a natural runner. Aside from being hopelessly flat-footed, my arms flap around in such a bizarre fashion that former gym buddies have struggled to suppress their giggles.
So, why run a 10K? Because cancer is a horrible disease that cuts short far too many incredible lives and leaves families grieving. Because 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Because over the past forty years, cancer survival rates have doubled and there is hope for the future.
Perhaps you or your family have been affected by cancer. Or perhaps you simply want to get some good karma going round. Either way, please consider sponsoring us. All donations, however small (trust me, I’m broke too), would be much appreciated.
