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

This year marks 15 years since my mum and I took part in our first Race for Life on the Downs in Bristol.
At the time my mum was still having chemotherapy for breast cancer which meant she walked the 5K surrounded by friends and family while I attempted to run at least some it.
It was a huge deal for us to take part that year - especially as she was still in the middle of treatment and we didn't know for sure what the future would bring.
Fortunately my mum was one of the lucky ones and she has now been cancer free since finishing her treatment 14 years ago.
Anyone who knows Meg will know she is a total Queen and absolute hero and the world is a better place because she is in it.
And a huge part of the reason she is still here is because of charities like Cancer Research UK who have been working for years to try and find new ways to treat this horrible disease.
So if you can spare a couple of pounds, or want to come along and cheer us on at the Downs on the day, it would be much appreciated.
Thank you!
