I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money but also to get myself back to exercise.

In memory of

Granny Pat

My Story

26th May marks the anniversary of when my grans suffering ended. As the race for life is the Sunday 27th, I have chosen to take part to raise some money but also get myself back into exercise. My gran always told me to keep moving! And I had been so good keeping in shape up until my wedding earlier this year which she had been looking forward to. It was a great day but sadly there were a few special people from my life who couldn't be there. Since this I have taken advantage of not having to fit into my wedding dress, eating more and not hitting the gym! But I can just imagine walking in to visit my gran and her saying I have put the weight back on. So this ones for you granny Pat, I know you'd be proud that I'm back moving!! My wife is taking part this race for life with me (I'll need someone to keep me motivated!), Leannas nan is a cancer survivor and such an inspirational woman, so this is also for you too May <3 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.
