I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In memory of

Arthur Barry

Last year, I ran for the first time in years and set myself the challenge to run my first 10k race in aid of Macmillan, a charity that is very dear to mine and my family's heart. Altogether, I raised over £2,400!

This year, I am raising the bar by signing up to run the Birmingham Half Marathon (it'll be the furthest I've ever ran!) in aid of Cancer Research. Another charity that I feel is super important to support and get behind.

Back in 2003, my Grandad Arthur, like many others, was diagnosed with lung cancer. Unfortunately, there wasn't much that can be done and he sadly passed away at the age of 66. Much too young for our liking.

So many loved ones are taken too soon because of this deadly disease. The survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years and new opportunities are being made all the time to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and I hope in my lifetime, I'll be able to witness an instant cure for cancer.

Please join me in beating cancer by donating anything you can - whether that's £1, £2 or £5.

Thank you.
