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

Well Race number 21 for me coming up! I may not be very quick, and I'll never run (or even walk!) a marathon, but I am trying to put in some effort to justify all of you lovely people who sponsor me year after year. I walk and jog as often as I can and also take part in the 5K Parkrun events every Saturday morning to hopefully increase my fitness.
So many of my family and friends have been touched by cancer and being a survivor myself I am eternally grateful to the scientists and doctors who, through their skill and dedication, continue to work so hard to find cures.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now. Or why not join me and take part in the Race for Life yourself!
Thank you so much!

Race number 21 completed! Think the training paid off as this was my best time for a few years - no doubt I'll be slower next year! Many thanks to everyone who has sponsored me - over £200 so far this year. If anyone else would like to donate a pound or two to this fantastic charity this can be done via the link to my Just Giving page, or I also have a paper sponsorship form. It was great that my friend Mike also took part this year - the first year men have been permitted to enter. Well done Mike - repeat performance next year!
