I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In memory of

Joanna McConnell

Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.

As some of you may know I lost my mum in June 2019 as a result of cancer. She had been battling the horrible illness on-off for 10 years. Josie was very active and always had a huge passion for fitness and health. She used to drag me up onto the downs in the pouring rain and darkness before school to do circuits with her. She was a keen runner and always considered doing a marathon but never got round to it... so I'm going to run it with her. I am raising money for cancer research UK, specifically for brain cancer... as this is what caused my beautiful mum and bestest friend to lose her life. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.. big or small. Thank you for your time reading this and visiting my page xxxxxxxx

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m fundraising right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose!
Donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
