I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In memory of


Thank you so much for visiting my Giving Page. I am running my first ever marathon for Cancer Research UK and my aim is to raise £1,000 for this wonderful charity. Having lost Dad to a rare blood cancer in 2011, this is a cause very close to my heart and I hope he would be proud of me and what I am hoping to achieve.

Please donate as little or as much as you can to support Cancer Research UK and also to motivate me on those long and lonely runs! I don't think I realised just how tough training to run a marathon would be... or how much it would take over my life. I really appreciate everyone's support, thank you! I will post updates on my training so you can see how I’m getting on 😊

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated for CRUK - I never thought I would raise over £2k - a tremendous sum - I’m blown away. I completed the marathon in 4.02.27. Just missed the sub 4 hours; the Firth of Forth’s headwind for the last 8 miles was too much for me but I’m chuffed to bits! Thanks again, Kate x
