I’M RAISING MONEY FOR STAND UP TO CANCER! I’ll try to reach the max level in World of Warcraft in the shortest time!

In memory of

Sue Fells

Most of you will know my story of cancer, but if you don’t, here it is;
It all started when my Nan Sue was diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer 3 years ago. Sadly, she passed away in September 2016.
In August 2018, I was diagnosed with a soft tissue Synovial Sarcoma in my left hip, and I’m just about finished with my course of radiotherapy.

Stand up to cancer is a great cause, and if I can do anything to help I will - even playing a game I play all the time already. Please, feel free to donate, or if not, cheer me on! Thank you all so much, it means the world.
The idea of this challenge is to go from level 1 to 120 in as fast a time as possible (from 1st Oct. to 31st Oct.!) - I’ll be using items in the game that will increase my speed (which seems a bit cheaty, but those items will only take me to level 100). I won’t be putting a time limit on myself, but I’ll be timing it using a stopwatch.
