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

In memory of

Jo Platt

As many of you know I lost my very dear friend Jo to cancer which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money. I am running with my daughter Lily. This will be her first 5k race and she really wants to raise money in memory of Jo.

If you would like to sponsor Lily (and me) and raise funds to help beat cancer then thank you so very much.

If you would just like to send her a good luck message that would be great too - actually I need all the luck I can get!!

Thank you from Lily and Claire xx

So we've done it and really enjoyed the run (TBH I think many could have walked it quicker than I "ran" it but hey so what!! Lily of course ran on ahead as I was just too slow to her. Well done to Lily :) Thanks to everyone who has sent messages of support and kind donations - not the hardest challenge (I mean it's not like we jumped out of a plane or anything!) but it all helps to find that cure. Lots of love Lily and Claire xx
