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

I am so near to my goal with the Great North Run and raising funds for Cancer Research. This challenge was given another shift of focus when I found out my dad has just been diagnosed with prostate cancer. His mother (my grandmother) had passed through cancer many years ago and as a result he ran & raised funds for Cancer Research in the Glasgow marathon, and here I am years later following a path... a path where you want to make a difference no matter what life throws in front of you from whichever direction. I want to truly thank everyone who has graciously donated so far & my only wish - apart from completing the run well - is to get to 700 pounds on this page thus making the total raised from my Race For Life, GN 10k & Great North Run a nice round 1k pounds.
