My Story

18 months ago I ran my first Marathon, in the beautiful city of Paris, and I enjoyed it so much I've decided to do it all again!! (and maybe try and do it a bit quicker!) As part of my journey last time out, many lovely people helped me raise just over £2000 for Cancer Research UK. I'm pretty sure we've all been affected, either directly or indirectly by cancer, and even within the 18 months since my last Paris Marathon I've had a number of friends and family diagnosed with the disease in some form or other. Thanks in part to the ongoing work of organisations such as Cancer Research UK, cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years, and many of those friends have been able to benefit from early diagnosis and the best possible treatment available. So I figured I'd do some fundraising once again. Feel free to donate whatever you can, and I'll update on my training and any interim events I'm doing over the next few months. Many thanks in advance!

CAUSE

Epic Dive

In 2024 Citi have chosen to raise funds for the EPIC Dive project, helping researchers find new ways to detect pancreatic cancer earlier. In England, just 8% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive their disease for 5 years or more. Often, this is because it’s diagnosed too late, when the cancer has already spread and treatment options are limited. The EPIC DIVE team aims to find new ways to capture and amplify chemical signals given off by pancreatic cancer into the blood. If successful, this research could lead to new tests that help diagnose cancer at an early stage, when the chances of successful treatment are highest, saving lives.
