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

In memory of

Richard Parsons

09 Jan 1958 - 06 Jan 2012

Hello team,

For one reason or another it would appear that I have signed up for another half marathon, even though last week I got shin splints after running for the bus. You will find me on 17th May in Hackney, I might be running or skipping or crawling but hopefully I will be having a lovely time.

I’m fundraising for Cancer Research in memory of my dad, who bought me my first pair of running shoes, the stylish brownish pink mesh Adidas numbers which still storm the streets of Chingford 9 years on.

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.
