I'm taking part in Race for Life in memory of my Dad.

In memory of


5 and a half years ago I lost my amazing Dad to the awful disease Cancer. After being diagnosed in August 2012 sadly he was taken from us just a few short months later in the November.

Nothing can compare to losing a parent so I want to do my bit and try and raise some money to help find a cure. My Dad never got to meet my son, he didn't get to celebrate my 30th Birthday with me. We didn't get to spend enough birthdays, christmases, fathers days or just days in general together. I didn't get near enough time with my Dad and I want to help to try and find a cure so we can stop this happening and save some lives!

1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime so we need to find a cure!!

As well as raising money for a brilliant cause I want to set my (very unfit) self a goal of running 5K!! Even at my fittest when I went to the gym and weighed a lot less I never managed to run a full 5K so nows the time!!!

Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s work, so please sponsor me any donations will be greatly appreciated and keep me going to hit that goal!!

Thanks Clare x
