I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

Auntie Lynn

Vic and me are running the Race for Life in memory of our fabulous Auntie Lynn. Lynn was my mum's younger sister and she was an incredible person. She is sadly missed by all our family and Vi c and I are doing this so her memory lives on.

As you will know I am not a runner and this is quite a big deal for me. I may not be able to run the full 5K but I will do my best to run most of it. Vic has been out training so seems better prepared than me but we are doing this together so she'll have to wait for me!

Please donate to a charity close to everyone's heart even if it's just a pound.

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.
