Raising money & awareness in memory of my amazing Mum and in recognition of my Auntie's bravery now.

In memory of

My Mum and everyone affected by Cancer

Some of you may recall that I successfully completed my first 5k race last year having never been into running nor having the fitness and body of a 'real runner'!

As difficult as it was, it has spurred me on to push myself for bigger things so this time I'm aiming for the almighty 10k (god help me!) so as to continue to raise money and awareness of the terrible disease that astonishingly and very sadly affects 1 in 2 of us in our lifetime.

Every single pound you donate will make a real difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so I'd be grateful if you would find it in your hearts to sponsor me. Every penny counts so no matter how small the contribution, it will be gratefully received.

With heartfelt thanks to those who can support me; I promise to give the 10k my absolute all and not to stop on the way! xx
