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

In memory of

Philomena Harrington

We are running this years Manchester 10k in aid of Cancer research.
Some will know my Mum passed away earlier this year after fighting two separate Cancers over the last 4 years.
I will also hit the big 50 this summer. Although my job keeps me a little active this will be a challenge for me as i have not done any sustained running since leaving school. So this seems a good time to both look after my own health and help Cancer research to look after others. So by all means laugh at my age and poor fitness but your support would be fantastic too.
Hayden is now joining me ( well in front of me more like ) to help raise funds for this great cause.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m raising money 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.
