I'm taking part in Race for Life in honour of my dear friend Kim, who faced cancer twice. Cancer research helped provide her with advanced clinical trials, and helped her face cancer until she passed

In memory of


So as many of you know, my relationship with running is a tedious one. I enjoy it, but it’s not necessarily where my natural talents lie. Having lost a very dear friend to cancer just over two years ago however, I realised that I should set my tumultuous relationship issues with running aside and just get on with it! 👟👍🏼

I’m running this race for my friend Kim, who was diagnosed with cancer twice, the second diagnosis coming after being in remission for around 5 years. Even though the second diagnosis was that the cancer was terminal, Kim continuously surprised us all by her incredible spirit and generosity and kindness to others. She way surpassed the 6 months doctors had given her, and would support others through their treatment whilst she was undergoing hers. Kim strongly believed in cancer research, and used to say that had she been diagnosed even 10 years prior, she probably wouldn’t have made it as far as she did because research and results were now pioneering at such an incredible pace.

Kim taught me so much about seizing the day, and even at her worst, I felt lazy next to her! I’m sure she’ll be cheering me on while I run for this vital cause, and I’d love to meet my target. As much as my dear friend lost her fight with cancer, it is still happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 10k to raise money and save lives.

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.

Aurelie (my race buddy) and I had our last little leg stretch before the run on Saturday- actually quite excited about it. Thank you so very much to all who have donated, I genuinely didn’t think I’d manage to raise the original amount, let alone surpass it!!! I hope to do you all proud on Saturday :) xx
