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

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 10k to raise money and save lives.

In 2020 both my Mam and closest friend were diagnosed with cancer, both of whom continue to inspire me with their positive and dignified attitude while facing ongoing treatment.
There is not a lot you can do or say to anyone in their position but one thing I can do is show my support and raise as much money as possible to contribute to research to make a difference to the lives of them and many others.
I hope this is just step 1 of the fundraising race and if the Great North Run goes ahead in September I hope to get a charity place for more valuable fundraising.

1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate goes to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
