I'm walking 10,000 steps every day this March for Cancer Research UK.

In memory of

Shug Kennedy

This month I've decided to challenge myself and walk 10,000 steps every day to try and raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

As long as cancer continues to devastate lives, we must do all we can to fight it. The more we research it, the more we can learn about it and the better chance we have to find a cure to all types of it.

I want to do my bit to help the fight against it. So many people have had to either battle through it themselves or support a loved one suffering from it. Too many of us have had to say goodbye to someone well before their time because of it. Dreaming of the day when we no longer have to fear it isn't enough - we need that day to come as quickly as we can grasp it.

So I'll get myself up and walk some steps to try and reduce my risk of facing it, in the memory of those lost to cancer and also for those who were able to kick it fiercely in the face. Its not even a fraction of what you have had to struggle through but I hope I can raise some money to put towards the goal of beating every version of it into the past.
If you can spare a pound or two towards this cause, I'd be incredibly grateful.

I'd like to dedicate this fundraiser to the memory of Shug Kennedy, who I unfortunately got to know better in his absense, after a far too brief period of knowing him. On our first date, my partner told me all about his dad's amazing stories - I couldn't wait to meet him and hear them for myself. He seemed to have had a life well lived but that didn't make it any easier for anyone to lose him not much more than a year later. He once told me that the most important thing in life was to try - find something I loved doing and work hard at it. He said that life was too short to waste on things I didn't want to try at. It's some of the best advice I have ever been given.
