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

In memory of

Auntie Sue & Barb

My Story

I along with many others have either known someone or knows someone who has battled cancer. Personally, I’ve lost an auntie to cancer but I’ve also watched my father in law and my best friends mum beat cancer. However just last year one of my work colleagues was taken from us way too soon and even more recently a close friends mum has been diagnosed with an incurable cancer. All of these people and many more are the reason why I have decided to sign up for the race for life. Anyone who knows me will know that I’ve never really run a distance before. The most running I’ve ever done since being an adult is running around after my children!! However in February I started running, just short distances around my local area. So I am hoping to improve on my running techniques and smash this 5k to help raise money for Cancer Research and to help save lives. Cancer is happening right now. 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.
