To raise money for Cancer Research and 5k will be a personal challenge I didn’t think I would have the chance to do.

In memory of

Nan, Auntie Lesley, Rod and Ernie

I have arthritis and after a severe flare 6 years ago, it left me unable to walk without enduring a lot of pain. I have had to use a wheelchair for any distance further than walking in my house.

In April last year, I began taking a new medicine that has started to give me back my mobility, albeit slowly but continually improving.

I wanted to set myself a challenge while I have this opportunity to push myself after years thinking that something such as Race for Life’s 5k was beyond my capabilities.

I chose Race for Life because I wanted to raise money for Cancer Research because I have lost friends and family to cancer.
