Got a couple of reasons why I am doing Race for Life this year! Sadly it got postponed last year and then cancelled all together because of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Hoping this year I'll be able to go!!
In 2018, my Grandad suffered with prostate cancer, he was in hospital a lot during the summer and unfortunately lost his battle in August 2019.
My Nanna was diagnosed with cancer in August 2012 with a rare cancer unfortunately she died the following year in January 2013.
Each year except last year (2018 and 2020) I have done the Race for Life in memory of loved ones and to help find the cure. So far over six years of doing it I have raised £568 towards Cancer Research UK. As I don't want other people to suffer like they did and by doing this I could in fact be helping YOU and me in the future.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s ground breaking work, so please sponsor me now.
