I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

my Father In Law Derek and my Aunty Peg

I suspect that each and every one of you either knows someone or as sadly lost someone due to this evil disease.
Our family have had our hearts broken and lost some very precious family members including my Father In Law and my Aunty, we've also got family members who are still fighting now. But on a more positive note I've also got friends who have beaten this disease and live to fight another day.
Sadly it impacts lives in so many ways, turning lives upside down, stealing loved ones from us.
BUT......together we can help raise funds for more research and keep looking for that cure, or ways to improve treatments so that they don't have to be so volatile on the individuals fighting their battle.
I'm no athlete, I couldn't do a full Marathon or a half one for that matter!
But what I can do and have done over the years is take part in Race For Life.....many years ago Team Twinkle was started after someone shouted "Alright Twinkle" in the school playground and someone called me Mrs Twinkle. Many amazing ladies (and kids) have been part of Team Twinkle over the years, supported by their wonderful families and friends, and we've raised as much as we can but with more and more charities needing to raise valuable funds it gets harder ever year.......but we will continue to do our bit, raise those funds and help find that cure.
Race For Life is a very emotional journey, we've cried and we've smiled through those tears......

I wrote this poem many years ago in honour of all Team Twinkle members, past and present......

With our shiny wings, Team Twinkle rocks, tutus at the ready and bright pink socks
It's not that far, just 5K, hoping to raise funds for another day
We're not your average Tinker bells, but we don't care..."What the Hell?!"
Dressed as fairies, a blaze of pink, offering smiles and a wink
No boxing gloves but the fight goes on, until the big 'C' as all gone
Pennies or pounds, whatever the amount....help us all to make it count

*************************************************************************************
Please support us, please help us find a cure, please give as much as you can.........every single £ can make a huge difference.....together we make a difference.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts xx
