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.
As you may know, one of my best friends went through the horrific experience of fighting breast cancer just last year and thankfully, she has made an amazing recovery. I remember how completely helpless I felt; watching her suffer and soldier through and knowing there was nothing I could do to take the pain away or make it better.
Anyone who knows me will know that I've always struggled with running, however, I am working hard with training to ensure that I can complete this 5k as a "run" rather than a "walk".
If running this 5k can raise even a fraction of my target, and help support another person going through Cancer, then it will all be worth it.
Thank you for reading my story
