I'm fundraising to raise money for Cancer Research UK

In memory of

Wendy Reich - OMA

On Jan 9th 2019 our dear Wendy was diagnosed with Cancer - she fought with everything she had during a gruelling radiotherapy and chemotherapy regime for the next 9months until in September 2019 we were told the Cancer was incurable! As most of you know we lost our lovely Wendy on December 19th 2019 - she has left a void that will never be filled in all our lives but in true Wendy style we refuse to let Cancer beat us!!!! In a bizarre twist of fate Wendy’s funeral was Jan 9th 2020- a year exactly from when she was first diagnosed! Therefore, as a family we want to partake in as many fundraising events as we can for Cancer Research UK and in Wendy’s memory staring from Jan 9th 2020 through to September 2020- to not only raise money and commemorate Wendy’s life - but also in tribute to the fight she fought in 2019! Wendy fought with class and style, vigor and gusto, but above all, with a smile on her face and always putting others first! And so we shall do the same.........
- Isabella and Robyn will be running the 5k race for life in Bristol in June 2020 and the Bath race for life in July 2020.
- Erica will be running the Thornbury 5k in Feb ✔️, the Bristol 10k in May ✔️ the half marathon night shine in May, the Bristol Half in September.
- Lawrence will be cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End during the summer holidays - where Erica, Isabella and Robyn will meet him to scatter some of Wendy’s ashes.
-Steph with be running a half marathon in March ✔️ The Bristol 10k in May ✔️ and the London Night Shine Marathon in September.

This is the list so far but will undoubtedly increase as we want to do as much as we can in memory of the ultimate fight from the ultimate fighter ❤️

Please give what you can - a hug of support and £1 will do - together let’s tell Cancer to ruddy do one!!!!!

Wendy Sylvia Reich
1949-2019 - gone but never forgotten ❤️
