Everyone who has ever been affected by cancer

My Story

Hello everyone, my name is Dan! Cancer Research has always been a charity close to my heart with this terrible disease affecting over 360,000 people per year in the UK which is nearly 990 reported cases each day but perhaps more shocking is that on average, every 2 minutes in the UK, someone is diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, as we go through life, it is very likely that we will know someone who has suffered or is suffering with this terrible disease whether that be family or friends and I would really like to raise some money to help cure cancer in the future so that eventually, no one will have to hear that 'word'. I have never run further than 5K when trying to raise money for charity so I decided to enter the Chester half marathon on the 19th May 2019 to push myself to try and raise a little bit of money for this amazing charity. If you would be so kind as to sponsor me anything at all then I would be extremely grateful. Thank you, Dan
