I'll be completing the Great East Run in memory of my late mother, who I lost to cancer in 2003.

Like many, many people all over the world, my life has been affected by cancer. Back in 2003, I unfortunately lost my mother to breast cancer, aged just 49. Which is why I'm raising money for this wonderful, incredibly worthwhile charity by running in my first ever half marathon - the Great East Run in Ipswich on Sunday 24th September, 2017.

It will certainly be a tough challenge to step up (over twice the distance) from the Twilight 10K run I completed last August. And I don't exactly have the body of a goddess! But I'm going to give it my best shot and help kick 'the big C' into touch.

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m raising money right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose! Donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
